I have tried to install the software that is given from the link and several others but it keeps appearing an error message saying there is an error during installation. What can I do?

Have you uninstalled all the old webcam software on your pc ?
Download Revo and scan your computer for any webcam software - uninstall whatever you find.

Back this up with a manual scan - Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >>Program files
Look for any folders that may be webcam related especially Lifecam
delete the folder if found.
Install software from Microsoft support. Select your OS and type Your webcam model into the search box
Close all programs when installing software and dis-connect webcam.

I have a webcam clip with the extention of an .exe how can I tran

Don't open that file without first virus checking it.
An .exe file is not a webcam file. it is an executable program or file, probably a virus or trojan.
or it could be self extracting file. Either way it would be wise to do a search for the name of the file on google and try and identify it prior to executing it.

I suggest that you uninstall the software of that cam first. Find it in the Remove/Install Programs then remove. Next go to Program Files and find the installation folder, delete it. Then download this program:

and install it
