After reading all posts here, I tried all suggestions but the Quickcam Pro 4000 was not recognized in Win 7- 64 bit. Even unplug and re-plug won't work.
However, at wit's end, I decided to try Win 7 - 32 bit, and after finishing installation about 20 - 30 minutes, suddenly it was recognized automatically. I could use Yahoo Messenger to start webcam without installing any drivers separately. It is a surprise; but also a disappointment. Because it means we can't use 64 bit; but just get stuck with Win 7 - 32 bit for now.
I also have several applications that won't run in Win 7, or Vista for the matter. For now, I think Win 7 is only a test driving; until I know for sure all apps I need can run well in Win 7.

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and I have successfully installed the Pro 4000. As previously suggested I downloaded the Pro 4000 driver for Vista 64bit. However, the installation would unpack successfully but fails to run stating "This Operating System is not supported" or something to that effect. Ignoring that I went to Device Manager where I could see my unknown device, right-clicked update driver and navigated to C:\Program Files (x86)\Logitech\QuickCamWebInstall\Drivers\x64 which is where the driver installation had unpacked. Clicked ok and it successfully installed. Opened Skype and tested. Seems to be ok.
Hope that helps anyone having problems.

I actually installed it on Windows 7 (x64) using installer for Vista. Only thing I did was faking return value of GetVersionEx winapi function.
(changing returned minor version to 0 (vista) instead of 1 (windows 7)). And it just works...

I'm in the same situation than CougarT. I have Windows 7-64bits and the Quickcam Pro 4000. I tried to install the Vista-64bits version of the driver, but it failed to run, saying it wasn't built for my OS. I then tried to plug it in anyway, and let Windows try to find a suitable driver, which it seemed to do. So the cam is apparently working okay with MSN for instance ; but I would like to run QuickCapture, and it seems impossible.
I tried to install the (very old) CD version that I had (QuickCam 8.0) but of course when I try to run it, it says that there are well-known compatibility problems between this soft and Windows.
So how do I make QuickCapture work ?
Thanks for your help !

right click on the executable, select Properties > Compatibility. Then Check 'run this program in compatibility mode' and Select Windows Vista. That did the trick for me. Thanks guys!

I just followed CougarT's post from 12-25-09 and it worked great on my Win7 64 bit machine using ooVoo.
BTW, I deleted all of the folders except Drivers under the directory mentioned and got rid of ~60MB of unneeded crap!
