Default webcam with new messenger

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

I have a Logitech Quickcam 8.3.0

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

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
