Apple :: Mac OSX And ISight With Windows Live Messenger

Apr 23, 2010

I've just started dealing with Mac OSX for the very first time, and I have some great problems getting the integrated iSight camera on my MacBook Pro 17" to work with the Microsoft Live Messenger protocol.

All I know uses Live Messenger 9.0, and I want to be able to chat AND having webcam sessions within Mac OSX.

Is this even possible? I've tried the new Microsoft Live Messenger 8.0 BETA for Mac OSX, which was supposed to be the very first official Microsoft client for OSX supporting webcam? But for me it doesn't work at all, no webcam..

My contacts doesn't even seem to get all my messages either, so it's obviously something very fishy going on with this client.

I also tried mercury, but couldn't get the cam-thing to work, not with the stable 1.9 or RC6 og 2.0, no matter what protocol I tried to use.

Apple :: New Macbook Pro With XP's Live Messenger Mic

Jul 7, 2009

I just bought the new Macbook Pro 13", its really nice, run boot camp XP smoothly, everything works out great. But there is only one problem, the audio come put of my live messenger sounds really funny, it sounds like slow down my speech and low my sound.

I always use live messenger to chat with my mom, today I use boot camp XP, my mom said she cannot uderstand what I'm saying, I'm a lady, but it sounds like a 40 years old male, really slow low, funny voice....I try to use the sound recorder in the Windows Xp, it sounds perfect. It also works perfect in Mac OS... but it just doesnot work in the MSN messenger.

Apple :: Mercury Messenger

Jun 27, 2009

if anyone uses this program? I found it and actually like it as it gives me the ability to use the webcam for the IM chatting. Just wondered as I hear a lot about MSN Messenger, Adium, but haven't heard much about Mercury. Nope, don't have anything to do with the company, etc. but just wondered why there wasn't more said about this one...

Theres been reports that it works perfectly fine in Parrallels.

I have just purchased my lenovo ideapad s110 and installed windows 7 on it. Sales agent informed me that it should have a built-in camera with it.

To my surprise, i don't see a link for camera driver on it for windows 7. I tried to access the camera using yahoo messenger or skype but it did not detect it. is there something wrong with my unit? or the model doesn't come with a camera itself?

Dell :: Creative Live Cam Avatar Webcam Manager And Creative X-Fi MB Software Suite

Jul 31, 2009

I've just done a fresh install of Windows 7 on my Studio XPS 1640 but as is widely known there is certain software which isn't available in 'Dell Support Downloads' or 'My Dell Downloads'.

I find it incredible that you can pay Dell for software (X-Fi) and they don't provide customers with the install files. I've still got the original HD and the recovery partition is next to useless as it's just a pre-configured Vista install, no individual setup files. Trying to rip the files from the Program Files directory isn't feasible as there are files all over the place which would require manual registration.

The closest I've found to the Webcam software is this:

Creative Labs Webcam Manager Utility A04

But it's a really old version and doesn't work with the camera in the 1640.

I've spoken to tech support and they directed me to an X-Fi software update which is useless unless you have the original software installed. I've asked for the install CDs to be sent to me but I'm not holding much hope. Why the hell doesn't Dell just provide the programs for download in the support section?

Apple :: Windows On A Mac - Windows XP Pro SP3 V Windows Vista Ultimate SP2

May 30, 2009

For those that use Windows on your Mac's, which version do you recommend? I'm thinking, what's best for battery life, performance etc..

I have a copy of Windows XP Pro SP3 and Windows Vista Ultimate SP2. I'm tempted to go with XP for simplicity, and the fact that it has equal compatibility and a shed load less intrusive DRM.

Apple :: Bootcamp 3.0 - Windows XP Or Windows 7

Sep 5, 2009

So since Bootcamp 3.0 is out what's more sensible to use; XP or seven? I know originally, Bootcamp was written for Windows XP and everyone (Forumers) said Bootcamp will work best with Windows XP even after Vista came out. I've read Bootcamp 1.2 was released so that all the Apple hardware components would work with Vista (AKA driver updates).

Now since bootcamp 3.0 is out; Will it be worth while to upgrade to windows 7? In other terms, will Seven give me better battery power opposed to bootcamping in XP? Whether it's facts or speculation; Is Bootcamp 3.0 set better to work with windows 7? OR is is like the Bootcamp 1.2; Did Apple release 3.0 so that apple hardware will be compatible with Windows Seven (driver updates)? and I do know the final version of seven isn't out but I don't think it will differ much from the release candidate kernal (correct me if I am wrong). Thanks and sorry if my wording confuses you, been working all day.

Apple :: How Is Windows 7 On The 15 In MBP Core I5

Apr 21, 2010

Is anyone running Windows 7 via Bootcamp (not virtualized) on the new 15inch MBP with the core i5?

How is the performance?How is the battery life?Any driver issues or other problems of note?Does the new MBP still run at 1 million degrees in Windows 7?

I am debating buying the new 15inch MBP core i5 or the Sony Vaio Z for a development laptop to run Windows 7. If the new MBP runs Windows 7 very nicely then I might go with it over the Sony Vaio Z.

Apple :: Windows NT 4.0 On A PowerPC Mac

Feb 17, 2010

As some of you know, Microsoft Windows supported the PowerPC architecture at one point, the latest version being Windows NT 4.0.

I was just wondering if it would be possible to grab a copy of it, and install it onto my iMac G3 or any PowerPC Mac for that matter. I think it would be kind of cool.

Anyone see any flaws/reasons why it shouldn't work? I mean, Apple itself in 1996 was planning on running Windows NT 4.0 on it's line of servers when their OS was going down the tube.

Apple :: Windows XP Or Vista For Mac

Jul 8, 2009

I'm planning on install Parallels. I'm confused as whether to use XP or Vista. Would it be easier to install XP onto Mac? Vista looks different, and I don't mind using something different. If Vista will cause problems, I would rather use XP.

Also, is Parallels a popular choice? How is Bootcamp? VM Ware?
