  • Microsoft Lifecam VX-6000 not detected by Skype.

    My Skype is 6.20

    My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium

    I found my old webcam and I wanted to Skype with a few people, but for some reason any my Lifecam VX-6000 will not be detected by Skype. I already tried to reinstall the drivers and revert to a version of Skype, but Skype doesn't always detect it. It installed fine I can boot the device in Device Manager and it works very well and even Google Hangouts may fall within the webcam.

    So why Skype does not detect the webcam?

    The latest version supports video without SSE2 was 6.1. However, this version, as well as all the Skype versions prior to 6.14 are now retired and can no longer be used.

  • My Microsoft Lifecam program does not work

    Today, I bought a Lifecam Cinema and I installed the Lifecam program but when I try to open the program I get the error message saying "LifeCam.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience. "and the program stops.

    I would really appreciate if someone can help me get this program thank you.

    Call technical support, as you can see they were able to help the poster in the linked post.

    After that everything else that tent quite detailed post, the only other thing to consider (in addition to support) is to return your operating system to factory defaults via the recovery options (after the recording of all useful data) and try once more the LifeCam.  It is rather an overdose, which makes the Support technique the more viable option.  If they were able to come back to these "geometric files", they may have other tricks in their bag?
