Windows 7: Microsoft LifeCam Studio Webcam - No Device Stage

Microsoft LifeCam Studio Webcam - No Device Stage

Device Stage was working in Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, after I formatted my hard drive it installed correctly but there is no device stage for the webcam. There is a default webcam icon and it is using the generic drivers. I have updated the firmware and installed the latest version of Lifecam and drivers, but still nothing has changed.
Done all the windows updates and changed the device installation settings. How do get device stage to work again?

Not sure if this is what you need? Silverlight?

I checked Silverlight and I have upated to the latest version. Still doesn't work. I have the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse and that has now got device stage. My Microsoft Lifecam Studio still doesn't work properly with devices and printers. There is no Device Stage. It was working perfectly before until I formatted my PC a couple of days ago.
