Guide: Installing Logitech Webcam Software & Drivers on Windows Server 2003

Installing Logitech QuickCam Software & Drivers on Windows Server 2003

I have created this guide because I have noticed that people all over the internet are in peril when it comes to getting their Logitech webcams working under Windows Server OS's. Logitech has made it rather clear on more than one occasion that they will never support server OS's. My response to Logitech is F* off!

So... On to the guide for all you stuck little kiddies that can't get this figured out.

Step 1:

Download the latest webcam software from Logitech's homepage HERE

Step 2:

Download a free program call Universal Extractor from HERE (Direct download link...)

Step 3:

Install Universal Extractor, you may use all default options during install, nothing special needs to be done.

Step 4:

Find your Logitech webcam install package that you downloaded in Step 1.

Right Click > UniExtract to Subdir



Let Universal Extractor run, it will take a few seconds to extract all of the contents of the installer. Once extraction completes it will have created a new folder with the same name as the installer package.

Step 5:

Create a new folder and name it whatever you want (I use "INF").



^This is what you should now have...

Step 6:

In the Logitech folder that was created by Universal Extractor navigate to the "Drivers\x32 folder". You should see 3 folders (ELCH, IM, PRO3).

Enter each one of these folders and copy the contents to your "INF" folder. Overwrite any duplicate files.



^Your INF folder should now have these files, or very similar.

Step 7:

Plug in your Logitech Webcam and wait for the "Found New Hardware Wizard" to pop up. Alternatively if you have already plugged in your camera you can go to your device manager, find the unknown item listed as "USB Device" right click and select Update Driver.

Select "Install from a list or specific location"

Next...

Select "Search for the best driver in these locations"

Check only "Include this location in the search" and navigate to your "INF" folder.



Next...

Windows will find the appropriate drivers for your camera and prompt you that the found drivers have not passed Windows Logo testing, click "Continue Anyway".



Windows will now copy all of the necessary drivers to your computers. Click "Finish" once all drivers have been copied and Windows is satisfied that the hardware has been successfully installed.

ALMOST DONE! (at this point you can choose to call it quits, your programs can now use the webcam, I will now show you how to install the Logitech QuickCam software if you are interested).

If you would like to install the Logitech QuickCam software simply open up your folder that we extracted the installer contents to at the beginning of the guide. Browse to the "QuickCam\x32" folder and run "QuickCam.msi". This will launch the installer and guide you through the setup process, nothing else special will need to be done.

THAT'S IT! Your QuickCam is now 100% functional in Windows Server 2003 thanks to uncle FragTek. All your QuickCam are belong to FragTek!



DIGG IT!

Awesome little guide Fraggles. You have such a friendly looking face and the smile is so refreshing to see at the end of a hard day.

Should this also work on XP?

I've heard many complaints from friends trying to install Logitech web cams. They get a message when starting the camera saying that the camera is not present or the camera is already in use. I suspect some sort of corrupted installation. Could this approach also work on those systems (running Windows XP)?

Logitech Communicate Deluxe on Server 2003 x86 Enterprise Edition R2 SP2 doesn't work

Hey guys,

I did these steps:

1) Plug cam into the PC

2) did the steps with Universal Extractor for x86_xp and x64_xp drivers

3) After the detection of the cam, tried refresh the driver over the device manager with the extracted x86_xp. But he means, that in the folder werent the right drivers. So I did the refresh with x64_xp drivers.

4) After that reboot and testing with Skype. Works great! After this try with Windows Live Messenger, and the messenger hung

5) Back with a ghost-image to step 1

6) Tried the same steps, but after the driver-refresh with the x64_xp drivers installation of the Logitech software

7) After a reboot test with Skype, and it works fine.

8) After that test with Windows Live Messenger. Result in a hang of the Messenger software

At the moment runs the cam with microsoft-drivers. Sound works ok, but da video is very crappy

I dont know what to do, any tips for me?

Thanx

Eduard

Good stuff!

FragTek, thanks to you I now have a working webcam. A friend gave it to me because she had no use for it, but Logitech had no instructions on how to make it work on Windows Server 2003.

You made it look rather easy, although it would have taken me days of fooling around to figure that out.

Thanks,

David
