Using AMCAP "Capture Photo" functionality - under a Limited

by ian.coetzer - 10/31/09 11:40 AM

Hi,

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?

Any ideas?

It is really frustrating having to switch to my Administrator account JUST to take a photo!
