Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 (68C-00001) Webcam

1 Answer

Lifecam VX-6000 will not install hardware.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I am on my second VX-6000 but still have the same problem. Install the software and then plug in the cam when prompted. During the hardware install I get a this error window:

Found New Hardware Wizard.
Cannot install this hardware.
An error occurred during the installation of the device:

The driver installation file for this device is missing a necessary entry. This may because the INF was written for Windows 95 or later.

The window has a picture of a speaker, so I downloaded the soundcard driver again.

I run XP Pro with SP2.

Help me please


Click Here Once You Pull That Up It Will Give You All The Downloads You Need Just Enter Webcam Under The First option, lifecam vx6000
Under The Second Option And Your Operating System Like Windows Xp Or Vista, Then Enter Your Language. Then Click Go It Will Bring You To A Download Of The Software Just Download It And Install It.
Make Sure The Webcam Is Unplugged When You Install The Hardware Then Reboot Your Computer After Its Fully Installed And Once You Reach Your Desktop On Start Up Plug In The Camera.
You Should Be Good To Go.
