View Full Version : webcam with new messenger

03-12-09, 12:19 AM
I just downloaded the new Windows Live Messenger version 14.0.8064.206

When I go to try to use my webcam, it says it is not installed....but it is !!

I have uninstalled both the messenger and the webcam and have reinstalled it, but still the same.

Any ideas?

Oh I have Windows XP

Which webcam do you have?

yes, what webcam, plus usb is not 100% reliable. make sure the cam is actually detected by pc

I have a Logitech Quickcam 8.3.0

I had no problem with the webcam on the older version of Windows Live Messenger.

Have Logitech released a new software package recently? Check there.

I could Cinema. but the new one looks real neat...and they should make sure everything is working before the launch a new one.

I have automatic updates, so I am sure it would have caught that but I will check, Crainger
