Answers :

Your lap top should have the necessary programming already\015\012installed.The cam is normally used in video,film or video chat\015\012format.When you have a video link on MSN MESSENGER,you can click on the\015\012video call to a contact,and even though they have no camera,they will\015\012get a video picture link of you from your camera but you will only be\015\012able to talk to each other,as you will get no picture as they have no\015\012camera.Get windows live messenger 8.5 and use the video link with your\015\012contacts.
I have the same problem, and as mr sys_admin said, those messenger programs allow use of the camera. The problem lies in that the camera cannot be used for anything other than instant messaging or streaming video chats. Originally, the camera was able to be used to capture video or take snapshots. Those options are not available now because the error comes up asking to turn on the camera. It's as if the software on the computer for the webcam can't access the camera. So how do you make this happen?
