Re: Acer Aspire 5516 Webcam problem

problem is due to driver
Go to site one below and Choose your model


Then you can download a vista driver download.

Acer Driver download Orbicam Bison_6_96_0_06 (that is, for its 5100)
and download empowering technology and in the following software utilities
Acer Orbicam Application (Bison)

Now everything is downloaded.

Install the drivers that you have downloaded to and restart when prompted. The cam still not working? Fake it works but do not appear in the workplace.
So now install the software that I told you to download above.
A shortcut has been placed on the desktop and click everything works

me what I believe is that vista does not install Orbicam in the work that is posted (PC)

Re: Acer Aspire 5516 Webcam problem

I started by uninstalling everything related Orbicam in Add / Remove Programs. In particular, operating systems and applications "updated" available at ACER.

Reboot. The webcam is uninstalled

I installed the original driver that is in "c: \ DRV \ CCD \ buffalo \ setup.exe".

Then the Application Orbicam I use a small executable content in the driver files: C: \ DRV \ CD \ buffalo \ 7670_VISTAXPX86 \ LIVECA07.exe "... and then the camera starts Tested later in video conversation in msn, everything works. After a reboot, it works!

As a soft Orbicam I created a small shortcut to "C: \ DRV \ CD \ buffalo \ 7670_VISTAXPX86 \ LIVECA07.exe" on my desk, I renamed Orbicam.
The capture function, image settings too.

Re: Acer Aspire 5516 Webcam problem

I understood is that when you have finished installing the driver, must live or liveca07 search on the computer, normally it is in ACER (C)> RVD> CCD> BUFFALO> 6070_VISTA_XPx70

In short it is somewhere in the computer. And it's live or liveca07 that will work now as a webcam you can right click and send a shortcut on the desktop and you have a problem solved.
