Vista Drivers for Logitec QuickCam Ultra Vision SE fail

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?UkpX?=, Aug 2, 2007.

  1. Vista Drivers for Logitec QuickCam Ultra Vision SE fail from Logitec website
    or from Microsoft Windows Update.

    Same with Plantronics DSP 500, same with a few other things...

    The machine is a ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe, AMD FX-60, 4GB dual channel memory,
    1TB of disk.

    I went to the Logitec WebCam as it is supposed to be Vista Cerified...

    Any thoughts?

    Are you running Vista 64 bit? If so, the Logitech driver is not for
    Vista 64, it's 32 bit only, Plantronics says they have no Vista drivers
    for your device.

    If you're running Vista 32 bit, you're in the wrong newsgroup.

    Please let us know what version of Vista you're running.

  3. Yes, Vista 64 Ultimate with the machine not working. Have Vista 64 Home
    Premium on two other machines, those machines do not have a problem with the
    plantronics DSP 500. I have not tested the brand new out of the box logitec
    webcam yet...

  4. RJW:
    Go here:
    http://test.catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=logitech quickcam ultra vision
    And download the one labeled "Logitech - Other Hardware - Logitech QuickCam
    Ultra Vision - Windows Vista,Windows XP 64-Bit Edition Version 2003"
    It is a 3.3 MB download and is dated May 11th, 2007.
    After the download finishes you will have a *.cab file
    Uncompress it in order to have the drivers expanded (many inf, sys, dll's,
    etc.)
    Now you can install your web camera via the "Have Disk" option, pointing to
    the dir where you uncompressed the downloaded cab.

  5. I downloaded and expanded, then attempted to install manually... Got the
    same error I get when Vista downloads and installs driver automatically
    (windows update).

    ___________________________________________________________
    Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device

    Windows found the the driver siftware for you device, but encountered and
    error while attempting to install it.

    Logitech USB Camera (ultra vison)

    An error occured during the installation of the device.

    The driver installation file for this device is missing a necessary entry.
    This may be because the INF was written for Windows95 or later. Contact your
    hardware vendor.

    Has anyone considered contacting Logitech Tech Support?
    Since it's their driver, they should be the most capable of
    assisting with the problem.

    It has been my experience that it's best to contact the
    originator of any software when problems are encountered
    since they are the ones that will ultimately have to provide
    the correct solution to solving the problem. If it does
    happen to be a problem with Vista, they are most capable of
    identifying exactly where the problem is.

  7. RJW:
    According to what Vista is complaining about (bad written inf file) I cannot
    help you further.
    Just one last thing.
    Sometimes my only resort to install a driver is getting to the point where I
    have the "Have disk" button.
    Did you actually get there or just included the installation files dir in
    the search options?

  8. No I have not directly (no). I have had several different dirver issues and
    I was told to go back to Microsoft... I guess i was wondering if the owner
    of the OS could make a recommendation on a fix. Is there something broken in
    the registry of this particualr computer that can be "cleaned-up" with some
    fantastic utility, or I am just going to see bad support with this hardware...

    I have two other Vista 64 computers, some of the same preriferals that dont
    work on this machine work on the other machines.

    I will submit this issue to Logitech and see where it goes.

    Thanks to all that have attempted to help.

    Bob.

  9. I did get there.... I have this feeling that I have a early productrion
    Version of Vista and the registry is now "corrupted" to the point where
    installing device drivers does not go well on this machine, and I dont really
    want to start at ground zero, that is why I was thinking MS or someone in the
    MS Vista DG's might just say do ______!

    Thanks for your assistance.

  10. RJW:
    This one won't hurt to try.
    Delete (or just rename) the file named INFCACHE.1 in C:\Windows\Inf
    Reboot and try again.
    Somehow that file gets corrupted from time to time and there have been many
    cases in which its deletion has worked out many "impossible" usb devices
    installation.

  12. RJW:
    You will have to take "ownership" of the file before doing any operation.
    These are some notes about taking ownership that I picked elsewhere on the
    web.
    "1) Open an elevated command prompt (right-click command prompt, click Run As
    Administrator)
    2) change the directory to the folder that contains the file that is having
    problems (e.g. "cd windows.old\program files\program folder")
    3) Type the following command and press enter:

    icacls program.exe

    Where program.exe is the program that won't run.

    If you get an access denied error, execute this command, and then try again:

    takeown /F program.exe /A


    Executing these commands should give you access to the files:

    cd f:\windows.old\program files

    takeown /F . /A /R /D Y > NUL

    icacls . /grant System:(CI)(OI)(IO)(F) /grant
    Administrators:(CI)(OI)(IO)(F) /grant Users:(CI)(OI)(IO)(RX) /grant
    System:(F) /grant Administrators:(F) /grant Users:(RX) /T /L /Q

    This will allow you to get at the files inside those folders."

    Best of luck.

  13. No luck... Thanks for all the sugestions, good refresher... things I have not
    done for some time as I am mostly on UNIX.

    Talked to Logitech twice today... of course I needed to rehash ground I have
    already been too on my own and with the help of this DG.

    I will post a solution once I get one.

    Thanks again.

    Please let us know if that solution comes from Logitec as
    opposed to users in the same boat as you.

    I gave up on Logitec several years ago because I thought they
    orphaned products almost as soon as they were out the door. If
    their support has improved, I'm willing to give them another
    try.

  15. Logitech was of no help here... I ended up reinstalling Vista, then
    everything worked that was not working before.
