Title: Windows 7
Post by: Badbea on November 13, 2009, 11:00:32 AM
Hi all,

Have installed windows 7 as WD is supposed to be compatible.  All running OK apart from Web Cam Capture vers 9.3.  Opens OK but then totally seizes as soon as I try to set anything up. It then gives 'not responding' and I have to do a restart to get rid of it.  Has anyone else tried Windows 7 yet?  I have downloaded the latest WD, vers 10.37P Build 8.  Web cam itself is running OK, and ftp running but not uploading a new image.

Any ideas?

Phil ???

I've got W7 here but I've not unpacked it yet as I'm not sure which PC to put it on.
Anyway, I would have a look on the Weather-Watch forum and see if there's anything in there that may help. I know there's threads on there about W7 & WD so you may find your answer, if not then just ask.  ;)

Thanks Budgie,  now got it working - I did not set the 'run as administrator' for all users for the wdwebcamcapture application.

Hopefully now all running fine under W7.
