My son in law and I are trying to sommunicate by web cam using Yahoo messenger.
I can see him but he cannot see me. His computer says "Using incorrect version of software, please update" We are using the latest version of messenger.
Any ideas. I use XP Pro and he uses 98SE.
Many thanks in advance.

Its usually firewall that blocks the signal,or the directory sever is busy,try lowering settings to medium in firewall.

do you connect through a Lan... a router or such device?

We all updated to messenger 5.5 and that solved the problem.
duplo I use broad band on cable and the receiver is on 56K no lan or router.
sound not good so that is the next problem to solve.
many thanks
