photolib2002 & acuter digital imager

G'day bought this new acuter digital imager and was told it would work on Vista however it does not work.

The story sofar is I have a brand new notebook with windows vista home premium on it. I installed the software on the notebook and it works fine. the software is Photolib2002. The notebook has an inbuilt camera and it works with it. Now when I connect my camera to the note book it lights up and appears to be ready and I start the program Photolib2002 and it just stalls and is "not responding".

I tried starting the program and then connecting the camera and sthe same problem. The driver is installed for the camera because when I first connected it the computer acknowledged it.

I got smart and though maybe the camera on the computer is interfering with the program so I diable the onboard camera and then started again and the same problem "not responding"

Has anyone got this camera or had similar problems. I bout it locally because I was told it would work on vista if it is not going to work then it useless to me.

Any suggestions ? any appreciated. I have searched the net and there is nothing and there is a no web site for the acuter.

I attach the pdf link for the actual camera

thanks in advance guys

Wink Hi shane shaw

I have Acuter camera and Photolib2002 instaled on lapi with Vista Home Premium and it's working OK.I only changed compability mode to win98.
Try to remove software and camera from control panel and then reinstal them back but this time first disable built-in cam.From Add/Remove programs uninstall PhotoLib2002 and STV0672 Camera v102 install files
Hope will work

problem solved mate... I should have posted. I changed the compatability mode to win98 and it works fine. took a few trys and different versions but got it working.

I do have a question I had saturn on the cam last night and have a look at the image i got was not very well focused. I tried and tried to focus but the best i could get was a blurred saturn...... I took the barlow that comes with it off and put the small attachjment on and there was nothing ????
