Windows 7: Need a free webcam software

Need a free webcam software

Well I have an acer aspire one running windows 7 and it works great once I figured out the cause of some issues. But the webcam software doesnt work. Its got a built in acer crysta eye cam. Windows installed the drivers so it works on sites like blogtv. However it used to show up in my computer so I could use it to take pictures. It no longer does. I tried Installing the xp software to control this and it did not find the cam. The cam does work, i have tested it on blogtv. Does anyone know a easy software to control this?

Hello Herox,

Have you already tried installing and running the XP software using compatibility mode to see if it made any difference?

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Windows 7 could be recognizing the Webcam as not compatible with the software. (something like that)

You could try installing the Vista Driver for your webcam, from Acer's Site. Then installing the software.

I had that problem back in Windows 7 Beta (Build 7000), worth a shot right?

Its already known that the drivers work and the software does not. Its an acer aspire ONE, if you dont believe me google it. This laptop isnt even supposed to be able to run windows 7 and I got it on here.

I was only making a suggestion. I'll just let someone else help you.

Having exactly the same problem with my Acer 150.....the downloads from the Acer site do not work with Windows 7. Have been running Windows 7 Ultimate and it works great except for the cam.

You assumed I was saying you didn't know anything (or something similar), when in fact I was only suggesting a solution that worked for me in the past.

I help people here all the time, 70% of the time my comments work, 20% of the time my comments help but not solve it. 10% of the time it doesn't help/solve it.

Now I'm off to make another wallpaper.
