I have successfully installed the Drivers on Windows 7 x64 to at least get the camera recognised in the list of devices. I can use the camera in Microsoft OneNote but you loose all the features of the application add-in that you get to control the camera's PTZ as well as the add-ins. It is very frustrating to loose all these features.
I tried installing the application under every version of compatibility mode. It is very frustrating because Logitech's installer uncompresses a file and then launches another .exe to do the install. You then loose the context of the Compatibility mode. I uncompressed the files and did the 2nd step manually. Still no luck. Thank goodness for Restore points under windows 7 or I would have had to reinstall from scratch because the install trashed Windows 7 x64.
I have tried qc1150_x64 and qc1180_x64.exe. I see that there is now a lws100_x64.exe which I will try. Not really interested in Vid though.
At this point Logitech should have no excuses. Windows 7 is RTM now. There should be Betas as Windows 7 will be released to Corporations on August 7th a mere 10 days from now.
What's up Logitech?
Also while I am at it why does the home page if you click on support and then on downloads and drivers webcams bring you to the store page with suggestions of new cameras to buy. You don't support the older products?

Just wondering how you were able to get the logitech orbit mp to somewhat work in 7. I used lws100_x64.exe and plugged cam in when prompted. It returned an error say "this program is not compatible with the particular camera" Pretty much done at that point. I tried lowering UAC and runas admin with no difference in behavior.
the lws one is listed as a Vista app, but i do not have a Vista machine to test on.

The problem is that Windows (any version) by default does not give you a tool to capture video from the device. If you plug in the device one of the Windows Updates will download a driver. This will get the device recognised by Windows. The problem is that you want all the other things that are included in the install. This is were things break even after you take apart the Logitech install and do each piece manually so that you can set compatibility mode and it will install.
I retried the install recentely using the version you mentioned. No go.
We are currently using the camera with Microsoft OneNote because this application allows you to capture video. Then you save the video out and can do whatever you want with it. If you find any other programs that allow you to record video let me know. You also loose all the functionality related to the PTZ motors. Also very sad.
Logitech should be ashamed.
Windows 7 was released today. I bet we have no drivers for it. Very sad!

Does logitech have the driver downloads for windows 7 for the logitech MP webcam yet? I had to purchase a microsoft lifecam 6000 yesterday and this thing is no where comparable to logitech. Please let me know if you can help as I really need to connect my logitech cam again or is there any upgradable cams that are compatible with windows 7? Please help!
