It works with programs like IM programs, or movie maker. Just point the program to the camera. It should automatically see it.

I upgraded to Microsoft Vista and now my HP Pavillion Webcam does not work. I believe it is not compatible with the new software. Is there an upgrade available? Or any ideas to get it to work?
