Windows 7: Webcam not working after Win7 x64 Install in Sony Vaio

Webcam not working after Win7 x64 Install in Sony Vaio

I have a Sony Vaio laptop ( Model #: VGN FZ240E). I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on my laptop. Now my built-in Motion Eye webcam (vgp vcc8 from Ricoh) does not work. I tried downloading the drivers for Windows 7 from Sony's website but when I install them, I get a message saying "This upgrade is for Windows Vista only".

Can someone please help me figure out how to fix this problem? Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thanks

windows 7 ultimate 64bit
I have finally fixed it!!

After trying everything you could possibly imagin the only thing that worked to get my camera working again was downloading and installing a driver for the vgp vcc 8 from Ricoh. Even though it wasn't the exact driver for my model and it was for windows vista for some reason it worked! So I would recomend atleast trying it. All I did was google the driver.
