LifeCam 4.25 install on Win 8

Q: LifeCam 4.25 install on Win 8

Downloaded the LifeCam 4.25 software and installed it (Win 8 x64, HD-5001 webcam). After doing the install (uninstalled the old version first) upon rebooting there is no LifeCam software listed in my Start menu-Programs (I use Start8). I do a search but it says no lifecam.exe is found. LifeCam 4.25 shows in the programs in the Control Panel though.
Webcam works fine ( I use oovoo) but I wanted o be able to use LifeCam software as well to adjust the webcam.


Preferred Solution: LifeCam 4.25 install on Win 8

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I downloaded the LifeCam 3.0 beta so I can use my camera with Windows 7. On installation I it runs through the progess bar 5 or 6 times, then gives me an error message that it was "Unable to install the software due to an unexpected error."This happened 3 different times. Any ideas?

A:LifeCam 3.0 won't install

Hi, when you ran the installation file (that I assume you downloaded from MS) did you right click on it and choose Run as Adminstrator? Did you try disabling your virus checker/firewall software while you installed?
I just noticed, the lifecam software is 2.91 not 3.0... http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/windows7/support.mspx did you get the right download?

I keep getting this error: "Insufficient disk space" or Error 1603 when you try to install IntelliPoint, IntelliType Pro, or LifeCam software

It doesn't say insufficient disk space. Just says it's aborted the installation. It might be something with the fact the software downloads and installs. Why can't they just give me an .exe installer file? UGH

I have tried everything on that support doc...spent hours trying to figure this out and I hit that error every time.

Is anyone STILL struggling? I have contacted MS support but I wasn't around when they contacted me and who knows how long it will take for the guy on the other side of the world to baby step me through the whole support doc over again.

I will post any system info if needed. Just wanted to know if A) anyone has solved this, or B) anyone still having problems with installation after following all the steps.

A:LifeCam 3.0 can't install; tried everything

When you tell it to install are you selecting "Run As Administrator"?
If you do not do that it may stop you from installing.

If you are installing from the web you might consider downloading to your HD first them after uncompressing or whatever you right mouse click on the install program and select " Run As Administrator"

I get error an error code 953691 when installing lifecam software for vista

A:trying to install lifecam

That error can occur if the camera is plugged in to the PC before you begin the software installation. Unplug the camera from the usb port first. Now install the software. At some point during the software installation, it will prompt you to plug the camera in to the usb port. Do not plug it in until it prompts you to do so.

That procedure applies to most USB devices which require external driver software (eg printers, scanners etc)

This is my first visit to a forum and first attempt to post.
I use Windows XP SP3 and am trying install a Microsoft LifeCam HD 300 camera for use with Skyype.
I initially installed the cam using the software on the supplied disk. On completion of installation I got the above message. I have just installed Skype and found that the mic was working but when I tried to set up the camera I got the message " The camera is in use by another programme. I could not find any other programme using the cam. I uninstalled the programme and re-installed. Same result.
I then seardhed for drivers on the web and found LifeCam3.22.exe which I downloded and installed. With this I got the message "There is no camera installed on this computer"
I then came to the Microsoft site and found LifeCam3.60.exe and downloaded and installed it. I have come the full circle and am back with the original error message and at a loss where to go next.

Update. Microsoft offered to replace cam so I returned it to retailer instead. I traded it for a different manufacturers camera, am I permitted to say (a Logitech HD webcam C510), which installed perfectly, including identifying I had Skype, Windows Live and Facebook. I believe the problem was software.

Hi , my Microsoft Lifecam Vx-3000 has never worked properly since I bought it around a year ago. Recently I tried un-installing it and re-installing using the latest drivers but even this has proved to be a problem.

After an uninstall error , I decieded to do a manual un-install and remove all traces of lifecam from my system. I went into the registry and removed all I could see relating to this hunk of junk and also did a search for files relating to it.

Now when I try and install the new 1.4 drivers I get a message saying :

"setup cannot continue because there is insufficient hard drive space or an unexpected error has occurred"

I have 32 free gigs , so space isnt a problem.All I can think of is that ive left some remnants of the old driver on my machine and this is causing problems.

Can anyone please help me with this install problem as my 60 webcam is now a useless piece of plastic (not much of a downgrade from before).

Thanks , Gary

I have a new Microsoft Lifecam VX-1000 and I am trying to install the software to run it. After loading the CD and giving all the right answers and permission the install process goes into Internet download and install mode. About 65% through this phase, I get an error message that the install can't be completed due to a problem with my Internet connection.
The Internet connection is fine.
I have rerun this install attempt 6 times now from the CD and 3 times from a software packet I downloaded from Microsoft. The result is always the same and at the exact same point in the process. The green line is about 65% across in the download and install phase. I hope someone can give me an idea as to why this might be happening or how to get my camera to work by some other method.

Well no-one seems to be able to figure out the problem so I solved it the easy way; I gave the VX-1000 away and bought an inexpensive Logitech which installed easily and worked immediately. Maybe the moral is just stay away from MS hardware.

My mother just gave me a microsoft lifecam vx-700 to use so me and my son can take pictures and video to send. This is an older webcam I am assuming and it is just a plug and play. I am wondering if this is a camera/webcam that can only be used in realtime while logged onto an instant messenger/skype type of thing or is there a way that we can make our own little movies without being logged on? My camera from 1998 had more capabilities than this one lol. Just wondering if this is an online only camera?

4. You should see under imaging devices your webcam but with a yellow sign on it.

5. Right click it and go to update driver software

6. Click Browse your computer... and then click let me choose... there should be a button saying "Have Disk", Click on this and click on browse...

7. Locate the downloaded and extracted folder and go to:

LifeCam edit\setup\microsoft lifecam\driver64\vx3000

8. There should be a vx3000.inf file there, open this and click ok, you should see the driver listed, click ok and you will be asked if you want to install this driver warning by Windows, click Install Anyway and another compatibility error will come up, ignore this.

9. Check back on device manager if the yellow sign is on the webcam anymore, if not then everything is working fine.

Enjoy your cam.

I hope this quick little step by step will help a lot of you out.

I installed the VX-3000 using MS's installer for Win7 months ago. Now it will not show my cam in skype. When I attempted to uninstall the LifeCam3.0 software, I get an error:

Windows Installer

The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.

Click OK to try again, or enter and alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'lifecamx641033.msi' in the box below.

If you google lifecamx641033 w/ or w/o .msi you get nothing. I know that in XP or vista I can use software to manual remove something from your system when the uninstaller is corrupted. I have no clue how to figure this out. I've extracted all the files from the original installation and this one doesn't seem to be in it. I've also just attempted to reinstall but it won't as it's 'already installed' and needs to be uninstalled prior to reinstallation. The icons have turned to blanks so I know there is an issue. Any help to at least remove this would help.
Well after stopping the services and processes, removing all the Lifecam registry keys, deleting the software from the install directory, removing the uninstall from the Programs and Features list, I was at last able to start a new install. However, it failed. When it failed, it directed me to an MS article about the error and the other MS software that can have this issue.

Well I've been at this for 8 hours now with nothing but a desire to toss the box. Trying to install Lifecam vx 2000. Loaded up just fine on my laptop but my main box says "can't find hardware...INF file was written for 1995 or later" I've been everywhere on this one and am now fried.

I have the above mentioned webcam and Windows 7 Build 7000 x64 will not properly load the driver. Installing the driver is not a problem, but when I connect my webcam and windows tries to load the driver I get an error. This webcam worked in Vista 64 so it's odd that it is not working now. I'm starting to think that it's a permission issue somewhere.

I know one person has posted a similar issue about his VX1000 but that was a week ago and I'm curious to see if someone has managed to get this webcam working or has had another piece of hardware act this same way.

A:Lifecam.exe fails on initialization

Since this issue occurred recently, I suggest you try system restore to go back to a previous good time point firstly.
Also, try to refer to the following article to troubleshoot this issue:

Why doesn't my microsoft lifecam work with windows 7? Is there a simple way to fix this problem?

A:Windows 7/Microsoft Lifecam

We would need the model number to tell you a reason to why it is not working, and if there is a fix.. If there is no supported driver for windows7, you may need to attempt to use a Windows Vista driver and run it in compatibility mode.

If these options are not possible, you may have to purchase a new one.

Please reply back with the model of the webcam.
