Logitech QuickCam Messenger shows 'Webcam in use by another applicatio​n'

[ Edited ]

Hi, 

 I have the same pb with webcam messenger V-ubc40

Even the message web cam is in use by other application in logitech quick cam software.

I uninstall all other applications skipe, msn live, re-download webcan drivers and last version of logitech webcam software but the message persite.

The web cam works because I can use it to catch a photo picture with "printer and scanner tools".

 

Same pb with Logitech VID HD.

 

I'm working under os win xp sp3 family.

 

Does some body know key to clean up into ini files or windows registry ?

 

Thanks

Welcome to the Logitech Community Webcam Forum jsjmichel3! :smileyhappy:


Does this issue occur when LWS 1.10.1113 is installed?
