Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 driver download

The Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 driver is a pain to find on the internets:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/C/B/8/CB8414CD-487E-4E18-8B24-DA8ED722C770/LifeCam3.22.exe

Feel free to click on some of my ads if this post has saved you some headaches or time =)


This driver also works for
* LifeCam VX-2000
* LifeCam NX-3000
* LifeCam NX-6000
* LifeCam VX-1000
* LifeCam VX-3000
* LifeCam VX-6000
* LifeCam VX-5500
* LifeCam VX-5000
* LifeCam VX-7000
* LifeCam Show
* LifeCamCinema

Also, if you cant download the driver from the microsoft site, i am providing a mirror on my server for the download (please be gentle):

Mirror: http://programmingdrunk.com/random-stuff/LifeCam3.0.exe

edit 7/28/09: Some people are having problems getting this webcam to run on windows Vista with 4GB+ ram. There is a hotfix for that here:

  26. :( on my computer when i click on the link it says "Oops! This link appears to be broken." and it always happens whenever i try to get onto the microsoft website.

    Any Suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  27. @anon: I am now hosting the driver on my server. try, ive added a link to it in the post. try that. if that doesnt work, you probably have something wrong with your computer. Use a friends computer and a thumbdrive to transfer the file to your computer.

    ReplyDelete

    will lead you to my 2mb DRIVERS ONLY upload, which I offer up in the hope that I can prevent some other poor sod going through the misery of downloading the bloated Microsoft crap. If you ONLY want the drivers, just unzip the file, plug in your webcam, when your system prompts for the software point it to your unzip location. When it stops for the final dll, remind it where it started. Job done.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have a VX-1000 and it does NOT work with the driver only download from http://programmingdrunk.com. I unzipped the drivers and pointed the hardware wizard at them. It immediately said that it could not find drivers. The only way I could get it working was go to back and let the wizard search the internet for drivers.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Can someone confirm what James said about the driver only download not working. If this is indeed the case, i will remove the download.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Tried what James said too and it doesn't pick up the files, I have no internet connection to search for it either. I'm running XP.

    After spending 3 hours on that crap Microsoft site, I did a Google search. Not only did this come up first, it actually worked. No fuss, no drama, just did what it said on the tin.

    WHY ARE THERE NOT MORE PEOPLE LIKE THIS ON THE INTERTUBES?! Status elevated to: LEGEND. I will definately use this page again if I have any other issues.

    Thankyou soooo much.
