    Webcam Application


    I've managed to get the webcam application working,
    1.Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\GRE_Initialize".
    2.Create a new DWORD Value called "RemoteFontBootCacheFlags" with the decimal value of "4111".
    3.Open up webcam.exe in System32.

    You have to disable AERO open the webcam app then hit ctrl+shift+f9 and that will allow you to see the webcam app.

    Hope this helps.
