    MS LifeCam Cinema (webcam) not working


    Just got ms lifecam cinema, plugged it in. Drivers installed automaticaly, then i got prompt about installing lifecam app, so did it as well.
    However, there is no image from the camera, compatibility troubleshooter says that lifecam software is incompatible, and apps like skype report that they cannot access camera (and try to close other programs...)

    after trying to access cam from any app, led on camera starts glowing, but still no image transfered to computer.
    (tried with skype, lifecam app, camera app from metro, msn messenger)

    i uninstalled app, reinstalled driver, installed older version of app etc, and it's still not working.

    anybody have any idea how to deal with it? can't find any solution on this forum nor google.
