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.

Gigaware webcam installation not working


Remove the CD, then go to the program files folder and remove the folder that applies to this device. Remove the device from the USB port.

Reboot the PC.

Reinstall the software before you attach the webcam to your PC. Only attach the device when directed by the installation program, or after you have fully installed the software.

It's a pain in the ****, but reboot after you finish installing the software and then attach the device. This will allow the device manager utility to fully recognize the device and apply the appropriate drive files.

How could iinstall to my pc?


1) When you buy a webcam it normally comes with a CD. You have to play the CD to download the software to your computer. Only connecting the webcam when prompted.

2) If you do not have a CD you can go to the webcam manufacturer's support website, identify your cam and operating system and download from there

3) If you have Vista you can plug your webcam in and let the computer find the software for it.

4) Check your programs to make sure you do not have any redundant webcam software installed that may cause conflicts.
