    Hi,

    after I installed PD7 from PD6 my Logitech Webcam does not work any more in Win7.
    The driver are installed but it does not show any video just some video with green and red lines.

    I have also have unchecked share webcams to test if it will work.
    Same issue.

    Do anyone have the same issue with Logitech webcams or any other webcam?

    PD7.0.14920: Facetime HD Camera displays black video in Windows 7

    Possibly the same issue.

    Looks like it related to amount of memory used by Windows. The temporary workaround for that problem is to change it to 2GB or less:
    1. Stop your virtual machine
    2. Go to Virtual Machine > Configure > General
    3. Set Memory slider to 2GB or less.

    Sorry for inconvenience. Hope this will work for you till we provide normal fix for that problem.

    thx, but to late will have to try it on my MBP on the Mac mini i just uninstalled PD7 and back to PD6

    I just tested in on the MBP with the iSight built in with a memory settings of 3GB no issues.
    Just have onther preferences -> Hardware -> USB Controller marked share camera with windows and it work for both mac and win.

    I will not try it on the MBP with the logitech, so the 2 GB memory settings do not effect the ISight in Win7.
    Will try this back on the Mac mini (Lion) and report back if the memory settings will help, what I do not think!

    Works now with the Mac mini and 2GB memory!

    Waiting for a update so that I can use it again with more memory.

    Still a small bug, Need to switch everytime I need it in Win or Mac.
