    Camera not working in MacBook Pro

    Hello all

    I have a MacBook Pro 9,1 Mid-2012 (non-retina) and I installed Windows 8 Pro (got from Dreamspark). I installed the Windows 7 bootcamp drivers and one irritant has been the camera. When I open the camera, it says "Camera app cannot be used by this version of Windows".

    Any solutions? And btw it does work with desktop webcam applications like Photobooth for Windows

    EDIT: This was solved after nVidia released an update

Windows 8 on my MacBook Pro
Say I purchased another copy of Windows 8, could I load it to my MacBook Pro using Bootcamp? Is such a thing supported? Also, is there a resource for drivers? I installed the Windows 8 Dev/Consumer Previews but several drivers didn't work such as trackpad scrolling & WiFi.

win 8 / macbook pro issues
I own a late 2011 15" MacBook pro (quad core i7) with 8gb ram and find windows 8 to be quite buggy. I've noticed a lot of the icons have been replaced with these squares for one (see attachment) on occasion, if i'm running say photoshop and dreamweaver, the tops of the windows start to become...
