Okay, so I encountered this problem a while ago. I use a acer 5520-5912 aspire laptop with webcam. At first, it worked just fine. But then, it wouldn't open simply by opening the program by itself; it had to be opened via messengers.

Now, after I installed Windows 7, I can't even open the program. I remember before then that when I opened it, it would give me an error message, but it would at least open. But now, nothing. What is the problem? Is my laptop's program out of date and/or incompatible with Windows 7? Whatever the case may be, is there a way that I can get my internal webcam to work like normal agin, with the program itself without the assistance of an IM messenger?

Okay, so I installed the wecam suyin driver from acer.com. Unfortunately, I'm having the same problem. It won't even open. What could be its problem? The driver is from 2007, so I'm not sure if windows 7 would run that or not. What could it be?
