I installed Windows 7 on my 11 inch macbook air. then installed bootcamp and updated bootcamp. Everything works fantastic but I cant figure out how to access the camera. it never installed a camera application and i didnt see one anywhere on the machine. Its not a huge deal but would be cool to have.

I figured it out. the issue isnt the driver. bootcamp 3.0 and up install a valid driver. the issue is you need camera application software to actually run. I installed a free camera software webcamxp 5. It has a free version for a single source ( single camera). after install right click the large main window and choose source isight. then the first square on the right. then you should be up and running. it has both video and stills. much better then the first camera app i had posted earlier.
QUOTE Thanks
