Windows 7: Need workaround in order to use Wifi camera designed for Apple with Wi

Need workaround in order to use Wifi camera designed for Apple with Wi

Hi Everyone,

I need to setup a wireless web camera, and use it for conferencing purposes.

Toward this end I purchased a Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam.

What I didn't read was the "small" print, which is that this product works with pretty much anything that is Apple friendly and absolutely no versions of Windows.

I would like to try and find a workaround in order to use this device with Windows 7. I don't want to go all the way toward creating a Virtual Machine of Snow Leopard, or anything that fancy! However I am willing to put some effort in so that I can use this with my laptop.

I can't believe that this doesn't work with any version of WINDOWS!!!

Next time I will read the print more carefully.

Kind Regards,

Davo

I suggest you return it.
Unless Logitech produces a driver for Windows there is little chance of getting it to work.
Perhaps you should contact Logitech tech support.

I've read about people modding Windows drivers to get hardware to work on newer versions of Windows, but I suspect that modding an Apple driver to work on Windows is not going to be an option.

When I compare Windows 7 to Vista, I can't help but wonder who the target audience was. Windows 7 looks like it was designed for people ages 4-16. Alot of cartoon wallpapers, and stuff like that. I may not be a child, but I like it! Finally a Microsoft OS with a Nice Looking default...
