I've got a pro3000 and XP ... I didn't bother installing either. I can use
it for taking snapshots or video-conferencing without a problem, but not for
When I had W98, I downloaded image studio, and the camera just froze up; I
had to uninstall both, and re-install quickcam before it worked again.
However, I think there's something on the logitech site warning against
quickcam and xp.
So, just plug it in and go to control panel | cameras and scanners to take
pics, or just plug it in to use it with a messenger program (though there
are problems if you use msn or windows messenger and the xp firewall).
