Windows 10 drivers for LifeCam

Okay so you keep telling your users that there are drivers for your LifeCam Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 and to go through checking the Compatibility Mode. Why on earth should anyone go out and purchase a Microsoft LifeCam as I did before your Windows 10 came online only to find out there is not a Driver for Windows 10. It's one of your products so I am scratching my head as to why I should bother buying Microsoft Devices. Yes I can get the Cam to work, but in Windows 10 I have lost all of the controls that I liked such as camera tilt, and zoom. Please give us a download driver dedicated to Windows 10 so that I can have all uses back as that is why I brought this Cam (3.5 HD) in the first place.

Frustrated....

Hi Chris,

Now that you have me with you let me take care of this.

Let us know the make and model of your devices to search drivers for the device model.

We will soon release the drivers for the Microsoft devices to work on Windows 10 Operating System.

Thank you for your reply, my device is LifeCam 3.5 and yes I can install the previous Drivers from your link (Windows 7) but my complaint is that even though the Cam works and you can start it up using the Microsoft LifeCam shortcut one has lost the taskbar ‘hidden icon’ that used to show in Windows 7 and 8 enabling one to adjust the Cam when using it in other Social programs. Now one has to open the LifeCam program adjust it then close that program and open the Socialising program that you are using the cam in as both will not work together. Perhaps if Microsoft eventually dedicate a Driver to Windows 10 this problem will be overcome. Why you lapsed with your own devices where as other manufacturers such as Logitech delivered their own Drivers for Windows 10 I do not know.

Thank you.

Chris, that method and means of using Device Driver was a failure, Now that you have tried to avoid issue, what now?

I am still waiting for Microsoft to dedicate a driver for this product for Windows 10, downloading for 7 tells one before continuing with the download that some programs will not work. You can get the cam to work but not as it did in Windows 7 or 8. I'm not holding my breath waiting for Microsoft, and next time will buy another brand of Cam that has a driver for 10.

folks - 2017 feb and still no solution. Just noticed, after win 10 upgrade, that my LifeCamera doesn't work (oddly said that s/w was partially installed and needed system reboot).

Removed device and tried to apply current drives as suggested above and they won't install.

Any answers Microsoft?

Brad,

It seems that Microsoft has other more important things to do like making even more billions and billions rather that sort something that one would have thought very simple considering their resources!

... obviously you and the rest of the world have a different opinion on the definition of " We will soon release the drivers for the Microsoft devices to work on Windows 10 Operating System." is there going to be a driver for this LifeCam 3.5 on windows 10 or should we add it to the growing pile of obsolete Microsoft crap that becomes larger with every new version release!?

Considering how cheap a new webcam is, and how much more capable and better quality today's webcams are, just get another webcam and move on.

Or are you wanting to make a point about today's throwaway society where nothing lasts anymore and we're harming the environment by throwing away perfectly good stuff, etc. You won't get any argument over that. Or maybe you want to rail about corrupt capitalism and corporate greed, etc. Yes, everyone agrees with you, but this forum is about Windows 10.
