Windows 7: Virtualization blocked by Webcam driver install

Virtualization blocked by Webcam driver install

Hi all,
Discovered after several fresh installs after playing with virtualization that is was blocked by webcam install..

The webcam works okay (s8850i by sonix) in 7/64 and good in skype..but stops virtualization dead till it is disabled or uninstalled.

From my experience with it so far Virtualization seems very easily disrupted.

I just seem to get over one thing and something else plays up...having real second thoughts as all these things go great in xp now.

Anyway thought this info might help someone if they find the virtualization installed ok but wont run...check by disabling drivers...webcams seem to be a real issue in the win 7 64...

Hi all,
Further to the webcam issue I have found the offending file "Camera Fixer" which installs in the startup menu with the "sonix s8850i" driver setup. By disabling this the camera works great and virtualization is now operational. So if you are having problems with the webcam also check for associated startup utilities as this may be the culprit.
