    Welcome and thank you for your contribution. The camera will not work unless the original poster installs the driver, so surely nobody is using it to spy on him or her. The way I showed how to install the driver would be the easiest under Windows 8 where the installer is giving him or her a problem.

    PLEASE TRY STUFF before saying it won't work -- have you never heard of "PORTABLE APPS" before. All this one needs is for the USB drivers (standard system USB drivers) to be working properly which they usually are.

    anyway here's the link. Attachment is in post nr 3 AMCAP.ZIP. just extract and run. (forget about the thread title about Logitech webcam).

    If it doesn't work on your system then OK - but this has worked for me probably on MORE systems than you've had hot dinners.

    I posted this not too long ago -- might be on W7 Forums.

    Hi there
    can't see the message
    file should be fine

    I'll see if I can install it on an acessible server then you can download again.

    This little app has worked on EVERY laptop I've ever tried it on -- with the .exe file run from the USB.

    Cheers
