This is a perennial problem for devices that were discontinued some time ago and not actively supported. You will not find a driver for a Windows OS later than XP.
I would take a look for a driver here:

Select the driver nearest to your camera model pc100 is there but not pc 520.

You won't believe this! After trying all drivers on MSI Site, reinstall the proper driver and restart laptop.

Press the P1 button on the top right hand corner (near the power, wifi, internet, etc button) and Windows does the found new hardware sound.

Open the application and your done!

Another problem less :)
