Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

My brandnew lifecam VX3000 does not work with skype, skype tells me that my qcab.dll is not fit for windows or contains an error. When trying to use the VX 3000 software the program tells me that there is an initialization error. I tryed downloading a qcab.dll but I am not allowed to delete the original one from sysytem32.

Please uninstall your lifecam driver, download the latest driver from the manufacturer's website according to your Windows version (Vista, Seven, etc) and install that one.

    I did installed the newest software from the windows site, this is not my solution, please concentrate on the problem with qcab.dll

    This is clearly a incompatibility of the qcab.dll file with the current Windows version. In other words, most likely, you installed the software for the wrong Operating System.

    I have the newest software skype as well as the VX 3000 software and windows 7. I did not installed software for older versions.
    The qcab.dll file in windows/sytem32 cannot be removed/changed.. only by the trustedinstaller I read that i need to reinstall direcX but the uploaded program sysy I already have the newest one.

Can't download Skype error d3d9.dll


You are definitely using Windows XP as your operating system. Skype latest versions like 5.1 are not compatible with Windows XP. You need do download older versions to make Skype work on Your Windows XP. I recommend the version SKYPE V4.2.0.169. Try to download and install this.
Good Luck!

Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000-unknown video error on Skype


I tried the skype link given in Solution #1.

None of Skype's suggestions helped.

The problem child: Windows 7 (all updated) and current Skype.

I installed DirectX per Skype's suggestion.

Also found this link to MicroSoft driver for W7:

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/DownloadResult.aspx?category=ICE&type=LifeCam&name=68A-00001&os=Win7_3264&lang=en

It's working at the moment. But the camera was working previously with this setup. Time will tell.

Software Installation of Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 terminates with an error "Insufficient free space"


I purchaased MS Lifecam from Walmart at a bargain price of $50.00 yesterday. I quickly installed the s/w on my windows 2003 XP under 5 mins. The camera worked for exactly 20 mins. I opted out from installing the Live Messanger ( don't need it). However the s/w crashed within 20 mins, complaining of a fatal error, which it could not Debug, but insisted on sending off the report to MS..which I declined. After trying to reload the s/w on the same computer for 3 more times, which involved remove and re-install..I finally gave up on the 2003 XP. I then tried to load the s/w on my windows 7 laptop..got the same error message. After messing with it for at least 5 hours, and ruining half my day, I returned the product back to walmart and got my money back. What a scam!! The MS Support site tells you to reinstall windows 7 and then try to reload the d- -n!! s/w again. What kind of Freaking solution is that??!! BTW I have plenty of space on laptop, 80 gigs..so space was not an issue.
