    Webcam Drivers

    Hello,

    I am having problems installing my USB2.0 PC Camera on my Vista x64
    Ultimate. Apparently there are no 64-bit Vista drivers available, only Vista
    32, so my question is if it is by any means possible to install the 32-bit
    driver as my understanding is that Vista x64 should still be able to run
    32-bit software? The Vista 32-bit driver installs fully when I run it, with
    a note that the driver cannot be verified, but when I plug the cam in the
    system cannot recognise cam.

    Another option would be to try and run the XP driver in XP compatibility
    mode, would that be possible? And finally, is there a generic webcam 64-bit
    driver I could try installing?

    Thx!

    Since you have already tried the 32-bit drivers and they don't work, you
    have your answer. The webcam will not work with Vista 64-bit. You need
    drivers for your specific model webcam and they apparently don't exist.
    Drivers are different from programs that can run in compatibility mode; I
    won't say that *no* drivers will work in compatibility mode but I haven't
    ever seen that succeed. Someone else may have a different experience.

    Since webcams aren't particularly expensive, look for a new one that
    supports Vista.
