    Since this issue occurred recently, I suggest you try system restore to go back to a previous good time point firstly.

  • Mine happens to be a vx 3000.
    Seems Microsoft Webcam installer has redirected to the Skype page from the webcams original installation CD and returns null "There is no camera connected to this computer". Bullshit! Running the Logitech cam installer. It did however bring up a device manager detection sub-installer-module in Win7. Further proof Microsoft is destroying and screwing everything up in Windows 7. Even knowledgeable "customers are mostly always right" when it comes to, about BITS-transferable altered remote hive files storage arrays (probably fiber-channel) and update servers. The previous installation was uninstalled and then re-installed after a System Restore. (The CD is now useless as it now wants an internet connection to download Live Essentials Bloatware from Microsoft in the Skype redirect which does nothing to complete a successful installation. They're trying to force consumers to trash their investment. Innovation as it applies only to Microsoft
    Its obviously clear how Microsoft tries to control its competitors market products between its 32 and 64 bit OS's. Installation failure. Program and OS compatibility modes had no effect. My Logitech cam installation also failed and no installation compatibility or admin elevation had any effect whatsoever.
