Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 WIN-Blk Webcam
I have not being able to install and use my LifeCam vx-3000 suffering for 1 month because of the same error, "either you do not have enough space on disk or error 1603" if I remember well. I could not find any helpful web answer to solve my problem.
Recently I tried to install Skype update v. 3.8 and I got the message that the installation could not continue for possible causes, one of which was "windows installer not working or missing".
So I downloaded from Microsoft Windows Installer 4.5 for my version of windows XP 64bit "WindowsServer2003-KB942288-v4-x64" and I restarted the system.
Then I installed Skype and it worked.
THEN I DOWNLOADED THE DRIVER FOR my LifeCam VX-3000 v 1.4, the driver installed properly and the webcam finally worked.
You need to download the Windows Installer version that is specific for your version of Windows. It should work also for the different versions of LifeCam, VX-1000, 3000, 6000.
I think that the CD containing the driver "LifeCam v 1.3" coming with the webcam was defective and I believe it corrupted Windows Installer in my system.
Hope it helps in fixing your problem
Did you install the software with the camera connected to
the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the
software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it
should work. Hope this is of some help.
Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:
C. Windows Live Messenger:
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
