LifeCam VX-3000 - Solved
I installed the VX-3000 using MS's installer for Windows 7 months ago. Now it will not show my cam in skype. When I attempted to uninstall the LifeCam3.0 software, I get an error:
The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.
Click OK to try again, or enter and alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'lifecamx641033.msi' in the box below.
Well after stopping the services and processes, removing all the Lifecam registry keys, deleting the software from the install directory, removing the uninstall from the Programs and Features list, I was at last able to start a new install. However, it failed. When it failed, it directed me to an MS article about the error and the other MS software that can have this issue. Once I attempted ALL 5 methods, I found that the only course of action was to reload windows all together. Basically something was corrupted with original install. Even after removing everything, there were components of the install that were not named after the Lifecam software, nor stored in the same directory's. These files were probably write protect or protected in some way and would not allowed to be written over. Without a full list of the changes that are made to a Windows 7 x64 OS when installing, I am unable to completely manually remove it. One day, I will have to catalog the changes for future reference as this software is BS and I wish I could just install the device without it.
