    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
