Does anyone how to get  "Creative LIVE!" webcams running in Windows 10?

I have three Creative cams, none of which will run.  Not any one of the THREE!

Let me count them one more time.........(~~La-la-la, dee-dum, dee-dah~~)......

>>>>>>>  YEP!!   3 Not ONE will RUN!   :hysterical:


(Don't mind me.  I'm just venting a bit of frustration. :lmao:


Anyway ~~~ The software installed fine.  Drivers and all the rest are all sitting, listed nice & in tidy, in their folders..  

However, plugging into USB port gets nothin'.  May as well plug in a couple of matchsticks. 

I have a perfectly wonderful Acer E1-771 (64-bit/6GB DDR/500GB HDD) notebook, purchased with Windows 7 OS, 

and Win10 hiding somewhere.


I've sought support from Acer & Microsoft/Windows.  Nope.  As for Creative Technologies, they're pretty much denying the

existence of these cam models:  VF-0040;  VF-0050; VF-0450.


I'm not inexperienced with webcams. And, my previous 'Creative LIVE' cam worked great.

I once got a no-name cam for two-bucks for ordering 5 reams of paper. Took a little 'jury-rigging', but IT[!] worked, too!

But, that was all on Windows 7.   


Oh!  Btw ---- I'm getting the same result  -- which is NO result -- with a Logitech cam.

No model # on it, (white, spherical-shaped -- looks like a golf-ball,) and I lost the disk -- but, it should still do something! 


Oh, well.  If no one has any ideas, I'll be among the hoards running back to Windows 7 ..... wondering if Microsoft will

ever get anything right again!
