Webcam won'twork on windows live messenger

  rogerval 17:29 27 Feb 09

My webcam works well on many IM systems but on Windows Messenger I get a message that the cam is connected to some other program. No other program is running and when I try to use the menu item to configure the video and sound on MSN it just has a message that the facility is not available at this time. I have installed the most up to date version of Messenger and reinstalled the webcam software. It is a microsoft webcam by the way.

Any ideas please?

Go into Devices and see if there is a yellow exclamation mark anywhere.
