    Yes the web-cam shows up in device manager.

    Initially i was using VISTA drivers from third party website but it was showing in device manager with a yellow exclamation mark. I then went to Vimicro website ( from where i downloded a tool which detects the model of th cam & then downloads the correct driver for it. It identified the cam & gave me a selection of OS from which i selected VISTA 64. It then dlded the drivers which i then installed. Now it shows in device manager & on doubleclicking it says this device is working properly. However when i start the application (Amcap) the window opens but it is blank. I have tried it in MSN Messenger & Skype with same results. Pls help. Regards

What is the model/brand of the webcam as printed on the case of the camera?
