Windows 7: Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000

Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000

Has anyone gotten the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 to work with Windows 7? I've tried with Vista compatibility and also with XP and it just doesn't want to work. Any help out there?

Thanks

My rather naive solution was to alter the configuration file by changing the value being sensed for the OS version to accomdate Win 7 beta.

This worked for me on Win 7 Beta 1 64 bit Ultimate. QuickCam and all its features work fine.

Would you care to be more specific in your explanation? If it worked for you, maybe I can get it to work for me, if you'll tell me how, please.

Ini file modification

I ran into the message (paraphrased) that "this software isn't meant for your OS" so, not trusting the compatability mode for complex installs, I took a look at where in the install scripting the OS was being sensed.

I used the distributions disk that came with the QCP9000. I copied it to a spare HD volume and modified the setup.ini file's [OS64] section in the "Elevated" folder from MaxVersion=6.0.9000 to MaxVersion=7.0.0000 and installed from the modified file set.

I may have made another, similar change to one of the other cfg or ini files - sorry but I don't recall. Anyway, after doing this the install proceed normally for me and now, under 64Bit Windows 7 Ultimate I have QuickCam and drivers working fine. This installation also works fine with Skype and MSN Messenger video calls.

Well, missing information doesn't help, but thanks anyway, and yes, I've checked with Logitech and I do have the latest software for the x64 OS. I guess I'll just have to wait for Logitech to get off of their rear ends. But thanks to all anyway.

I just installed a LogiTech QuickCam Chat (I think it was their lowest priced model).

Windows 7 7000 x64

Inserted setup CD > Browse CD files > Right click Setup appl > run as administrator > Run as Vista

It installed & works

You could try some older Logitech drivers. Sometimes they work, until a new driver is released.

Did try the Logitech forums. They are extremely quick on shutting down any threads that even mention the word Windows 7. It is against the TOS to mention a beta OS or discuss a beta OS at all.

There are three of four posts a day they shoot down. They even had one guy who said he had figured a work around and was going to tell people but they shut it down.
