I recently installed a new webcam (Canyon) on my home PC.
Windows XP Pro. (SP3).
The webcam came with AMCAP version 9.0, which works fine, except for the following strange scenario:
When I log on with the Administrative account I can start AMCAP
and then see the camera window, I can then click on the menu
Capture >> Capture Photo, upon which another AMCAP window pops up with a still image which I can then save as for example a .jpg image.
Now, when I log on to me desktop with my Limited User account,
everything works as before EXCEPT that when I click on the
Capture >> Capture Photo menu item the second AMCAP windows does NOT popup and I can therefore NOT take a photo using the software?
Why could this be?
What rights can I grant the Limited User account that will 'help' AMCAP to perform the Capture Photo function?
It is really frustrating having to switch to my Administrator account JUST to take a photo!
