Idriver hangs during Gigaware 25-157 PC Camera driver installation

OS: Windows XP SP2.
Product: Radio Shack 25-157 Gigaware PC Camera

I have tried the driver installation software on the included CD and downloaded the driver installation software from Radio Shack. Both hang during installation. The problem seems to be with InstalIshield and/or IDriver.exe which stops functioning and hangs requiring the IDriver.exe process to be killed in Task Manager. I need the driver for the 25-157 without the installation software. Where can I download it?

    Found this link which solved the problem.

    The writeup in this link indicates the issue may be due to garbage in the Temp directory and suggests deleting its contents. I did and it seems to have corrected some of the problem. The installation still hung, but apparently enough of the installation succeeded that the camera began working. Not a total fix, but at least it got me operational.

    same problem, i tried finding my cd to no avail and i can't find a single online source for the drivers. the ones from the website install AMCAP but it constantly complains that there's no video capture device.
