Have you tried shutting down, turning off and restarting the PC yet? If not give it a try, MSN could have crashed but Windows still things it running. When you try to start MSN again you get your error message. If you've already tried that or if it doesn't work did you receive any error messages or make any significant change prior?

I got msn and im trying to web cam with a person and it will not work

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

My webcam doesnt show up when i plug it in !

if other IM like yahoo have the possibility to ofer someone an invite to view webcam ...this isnt possible in msn ..the only way you can do thet is when you click video call ...and this is available when both are using the msn program installed into the pc...and a new version ...if one is using a web related chat this became impossibe ...so ...take a good look and see if you have the button for audio video call..should be 4th from the left of the messeging window...it looks like a calling device ..with a film band on ...you may need to upgrade to a new version if you do not have such a button ...as long as in is working on other IM mean that the problems is on msn instalation

I have a Toshiba P200-RT2 laptop and I am trying to use my webcam on MSN and when I click to send my webcam invitation is says that my webcam is in use or not plugged in. I have tried signing on and off...

First go into control panel, click system and go to device manager. Make sure there are no conflicts when the web cam is plugged in. Is this webcam built into the laptop or via usb?
Thanks,
lee

Face-tracking prob with Quiclcam Pro5000

Make sure you have installed the latest software from Logitech's website. Be sure to UNPLUG the cam when installing, and ONLY plug it in when it tells you to do so.

Also, what service (msn, yahoo) are you trying to use face tracking in? Keep in mind that MSN, Yahoo, etc have their own camera settings, which may over-ride any default settings.

Of you're on MSN, Logitech has a solution:

Problem when i installed in windows vista

There is still plenty of hardware issues with Vista, so go to the cam or Windows web site for related issues and see if there is a patch. Make sure the cam is also set up correctly and use windows live if your'e still using MSN. You can also try installing Windows XP drivers as they are sometimes accepted and work.
