Been searching for an answer to this for some time, but to no avail.
With Windows XP, webcams used to show up in 'My Computer' (just 'Computer'
in Vista). Double-clicking gave you a live preview from within the My
Computer window. This feature seems to be missing from Vista Ultimate -
really annoying! I've got a Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000 and a cheap generic
camera attached to the wall outside my house (with a USB extension cable) and
used to use the handy My Computer screen to check who was at the door, etc.
Now it seems I need to find a piece of (simple) software to replace this
functionality with Vista!
Has anyone got any advice for me?
