How To: Make Creative Live Webcam Compatiable With Windows Vista/7
In this video I show you how to make the Creative Live Webcam that has been discontinued in support since Windows XPx64 compatible with Vista/7 versions of Windows. Be aware I have not tested this one Vista, I only say this because they generally work hand-in-hand compatibility wise and such.
*Be aware this is the x64 aka 64-bit version of the driver, I have NOT tried this on a 32-bit system, in this case you can download the one directly below it labeled as:
“Creative WebCam Live! Driver Update version 1.01.01.0730x32_Test ” and try this otherwise Sorry you are out of luck, I cannot do much then.
Here is a step by step written tutorial for those who prefer to read and other things:
Make sure you have Windows Vista/7 in the x64 version aka 64-bit because the 32-bit has not been tested.
Plug in the camera into an active USB port.
Download the x64 version here:
Download the x32 untested bit version here:
After downloading the compressed folder, extract it and install the driver.
After the driver is installed, go to “Devices & Printers” in the Start Menu and right-click on the webcam.
Click the hardware tab, then properties, change settings (Must be Admin UAC), then click the Drivers tab and select update driver.
Click browse my computer and it should be something like C:WebcamWCamLive and then click Next then you should be done!
