Modded toucams and windows 7

I have just had a member ask me if these modified cams work with windows 7. I have modded dozens of them and never considered this. Mind you I have not been advised of any issues, I would check myself, but my Windows 7 machine does not have a parallel port so I can't without getting a USB/Parallel cable.

I just checked the Parallel to USB cable I have....only runs Win up to Vista. Most of these cables come with their own software so you can run a parallel port on today's computers. I'm not sure how the camera software will go, though. It may run in compatibility mode, but I would check for updated drivers and such.

Works perfectly fine for me. Although I'm actually running a Mac with a virtual Windows 7 install.

I had to download a new driver from the net for the cam, but once I had that installed it all worked nicely.

Cheers,
Af.
