Have you tried using the Live Messenger Beta to see if that's any better.

Windows 7 Beta
 
 

I have a Microsoft VX-3000 webcam and I can't use it with Windows 7 Beta. BTW it works with XP and Vista.
I used the MS setup CD to install my webcam and I succeeded only the 3rd time, when I started setup in Vista compatibility mode. At the end everything looked fine, there was no error report and the device manager sees no problem. But when I start Microsoft Lifecam or want to switch on video in Skype then my PC crashes.
I don't know if this is a driver issue or not. Anyhow: the installed driver is version 5.12.1.49. When I try to update the driver it says driver is up to date.
Any suggestions ? Thanks

It seems this is becoming a big issue and I can only suggest that everyone sends feedback to Microsoft about it and hope they can make a fix for it.

No need to browse for drivers or anything like that for the Lifecam VX-1000. MS released a beta of Lifecam v2.9 the same day as Windows 7 was released. My VX-1000 was blue screening too but once this was installed all was well.

Hope this helps.

I am suprised because I use the VX-1000 too and my cam is recognised by Lifecam - after all Lifecam is the software specifally for the VX- range. [also the new Messenger 2009].

Are you using the Lifecam v2.9 beta?

(I Don't use Skype so not sure there.)

Thanks, artnada, for your proposal. Now my webcam works under Windows 7. Using Lifecam v2.9 was a good idea. But in addition I had to download MS Live Messenger (which I wanted to avoid) and I had to change my Skype to version 4.0 beta. That meant downloading and installing altogether more than 200 MB software, not speaking of the time spent before with looking for a solution.
Microsoft promised not long ago, that Windows 7 will not demand newer than Vista drivers for your devices. Now a simple webcam (sold under their brand) shows that this is not true. I have a bad feeling about the future of my other devices.
