Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

1 Answer

Installation of Software

Having a problem when installing the CD the software does not finish installing. My PC is 2-3 years old running on original installed XP Dell Dim 9100

Say's An Error occurred during installation of the device. The driver installation file for this device is missing a neccessary entry.
This maybe because the INF was written for Windons 95 or later.
Contact your hardware vendor.

Have tried down load from M/soft and says CD is the latest so cannot do this.
Tried the CD at work on a new pc, after a tweak both sound & video works fine.

    No its running on XP.

    Took the Microsoft unit back and bought another, this time a Creative and would you believe it the same problem.



    Looking at the drivers cannot locate it on pc, tried downloading again direct from sites, bearing in mind I am on service pack 3 now still no avail.

    If you are using Vista try exploring installer CD, locating setup program file, clicking right button on it and chosing "run as administrator", this will sort out troubles related to Vista user control interface that can restrict program installation.


    If you still get the problem and the unit is new then get a refund or replacement, either it is a faulty disk or a faulty camera.

Trying to reload nero from old cumputer to new using burned dvd


Having a burned DVD sounds like you may have copied the folders from the old computer. You cannot easily re-install software that way. You need either the original installation DVD or a copy of the original DVD. Another suggestion is to borrow a copy of an installation disc and use your own registration number, that may work.

I recently bought a used Asus a7n8x mobo so I can rebuild my dead XP Pro 462 A Socket system. I am upgrading the mobo to the "Delux = A7V8X-E" board and replacing my 2400 AthlonXP CPU with a used 3200...


Excellent motherboard. I've owned two of them, best socket A motherboard ever. Nvidia nforce chipset, soundstorm audio. You can definitely burn the drivers to a disk or pen drive for installation after you've reinstalled windows. Windows xp may even have drivers that will work for the network card. So you may just be able to go to asus's website with that system and install directly to the system. You will know if the network card is working when xp asks to activate, try to activate and it will tell you if you have a network connection or not. I would burn all the drivers and software to a disk though just in case. Downloading the drivers and saving them on a CD is easy. Just download and save the drivers/software to your "my documents folder" when downloading from asus. Then open my computer double click on the cdrw drive or dvdrw drive whichever one you have and drag the files from your documents to the cdrw//dvdrw window. Once you've done this you will see at the top of the window "files ready to be written to cd". At the top in the left column in window you will see "write files to cd". Insert a blank cd-r or cd-rw and click write files to cd. That's it once its finished you can use the cd to install the software. If you have any trouble or questions reply to this and I will be glad to help you. I miss my A7N8X-E I sold mine to my friend 5 years ago and its still running strong and I used it for 2 years before him.

No installation cd


You can download the drivers from the Manufacturer Web Site. You do not mention what brand printer and which Operating System you have ie: Windows7, XP , Home Edition…

Go to the Manufacturer Web Site ie: Epson.com or hp.com etc, and choose your OS and download and install the drivers and
software, then restart your computer.

The website will have the
software "drivers" for you to download that your printer model's installation CD-ROM originally came with. This is necessary for your computer to recognize what kind of printer you're plugging in to it.

The printer's installation
CD-ROM had the exact same drivers that you will be downloading so it will be like if you’re getting the installation CD-ROM again but only via the internet instead of having an actual CD-ROM so don't worry about it.

Some generations of people are terrified of using the internet for no other reason then FEAR of the unknown and that is not my problem. Just be brave.



clip_image001.gif Most computers will have a wizard software.

clip_image001.gif Follow these step to install printer: turn on computer,,& printer and hook up together
clip_image001.gif click on "start
clip_image001.gif "then go to 'setting",
clip_image001.gif select " printer & fax,
clip_image001.gif then go to adding----after that the wizard box will display you just follow the instruction to finish your installation.
