however there is a workaround which works in vista, and i tried it earlier and it also works in windows 7!!

Quickcam pro 3000 works in version 10.5.1. It also works with version
11.1. Same goes for quickcam pro.

The software package from logitech seems quiet rational and works with
most of their cameras i would guess.
In version 10.5 logitech seemed to fase out identification for some of
their webcams - probably only as a matter of their service policyoris
that sales? Nothing to do with that i.e. The quickcam pro 3000 camera
is incompatible with vista.

10.5: Quickcam pro 3000

a) you can still download version 10.5 by going logitech support for
quickcam pro 4000.

B) start an uncomlpete installation and then geta copy of the
installation file hierarchy, thats is "program files\logitech

C) you need to go into the "\drivers\x32\pro" and edit the .inf-files:
Lvcoinst, lvproc, lvpros, lvprov.
For each,where ever it says i.e. 08b2 (quickcam pro 4000) replace it
with 08b0 (quickcam pro 3000). Replace "pro 4000" phrases with "pro
3000" to get proper presentation in the userinterface for windows
system management as well.

D) delete the 4 corresponding .cat files for .inf-files lvcoinst,
lvproc, lvpros, lvprov as well. These are security catalogs or really
the certificates identifying thus validating the integrety of the .inf-
files (vendor signed). You need to delete since the edits changed the
integrety. Deletion will override the automatic installation
(unmanaged driver installation) and activate user interaction (managed
driver installation).

11.1:quickcam pro 3000

a) you can still download version 10.5 by going logitech support for
quickcam pro 5000.

B) start the installation. (btw you can get a copy of the installation
file hierarchy in "c:\users\%user%\appdata\local\temp
\quickcam_11.1.0". It does not go into the hierarchy of program files
any more)

tip: Disable the logitech update service (desktop messenger) by using
a customized installation.

C) you use the software as is.skip camera connect when it fails
detection af usb plug insertion. Reason is that logitech decided to
remove identification (usb product id, pid) for plug-and-play

D) go to device manager,right click the camera or undetected camera
device and select properties.

E) select update driver, select to choose install location and go the
"\drivers\x32\pro" folder you may have created from 10.5. Those
drivers works perfectly with 11.1. You can even use the new camera and
motion monitor gadets for windows sidebar in vista.

Hopefully this will also help someone else

Different camera, same problem.

Quickcam 4000

All i did was run the Vista 64 installer and let it fail as predicted.

Manually point the unknown usb device driver at the 64bit driver folder and that was it, job done. No need to edit anything.

Working on skype perfectly.

I thought I would add this additional information. I installed the Quickcam software verysion 10.xx in Windows 7 and it recognized the QuickCam 3000 ...albeit as a 4000. Because I was unable to use the camera controls...i.e. brightness etc...I uninstalled the software and downgraded to the version supplied by Logitech for XP. Although the software did not automatically recognize the camera...I updated the driver for the "unknown hardware" by pointing it to the PRO2 folder and the camera successfully installed and I was able to control the settings. This was without modifying any inf files or any of the other stuff suggested in the first post.
