It sounds as though the I.T. people have stopped such software from being installed. It may just be possible that they want you to work when in the office, a surprisingly high number of company's do. :D

This web cam is legit. Its for work showing live streaming of a motor control centre.......honest.

It is starting to bug me because I have since moved companies and wanted to demontstrate the MCC to impress my new work collegues but it doesnt work on that PC. It seems this is a problem for other people I know, it works on some but not others.

Any ideas anyone?

Sorry, I can't work it out either. It is at least a Europe-wide problem, because I got the same error when trying to view the webcam at Härnosand in Sweden. I'm trying to find who makes the control. Which o/s are you using?

OK, I have the answer! Go to axis.com and click on downloads. You will need to register your company, but can opt out of marketing material. Once you've registered click on Software Tools in the right-hand pane, and download Axis Media Control (AMC). This needs to install a Windows Media control as well, which may be a problem, but just keep trying. My Vista installation refused to install the Windows control at first, but then took it, after which the Axis software loaded, and now I can view the live webcams! Best of luck.

Thanks pbp....I have Windows Vista and could not get a live webcam to work, because my computer would not let me install the add-on.

I followed your instructions, and now I have it working...thanks a million!

No problems getting it to work with Windows XP, but Vista would not cooperate.

Ditto but a trillion!

I had probs with www.lymington.com webcam too on Vista but they found this posting and the rest is history.

One thing tho'... anyone got it to work on O2's XDAs eg Orbit2. They are HTC platforms running IE6 mobile ? That would be the cream....

Newbie - I don't know who you are, but you are a GENIUS!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been trying to download that stupid program to watch my daughter in preschool (she just started! and is having a hard time being away from me, and me from her) so it means SO much to me to be able to see her now. Even my husband (who has a degree in Computer Science!) couldn't get it to work!

Thank you again!!!

I have windows 7. I downloaded the amc, but it doesn't work. I noticed when I go to the control panel the programs are listed, but when I go to the all programs list they are not there. I don't know what it means or how to install a Windows Media control. cAN YOU HELP?

I also have windows 7 on a 64bit os. My husband started loosing a lot of his video links. I tried to get everything back but this axis media control was just not installing. I tried all of the previously mentioned fixes and a few others I found on the internet. finally I remembered that he had lost the internet explorer icon on the taskbar the other day. I showed him how to pin it back. I also noticed when we did it that there was an Internet Explorer and an Internet Explorer (64 bit). We clicked on the 64bit thinking it would be okay since it was a 64 bit OS. I simply went back and unpinned the 64 bit and pinned the non-64bit (presumably 32 bit) internet explorer. All is well. Hopes this helps someone else. this was a very frustrating problem.

Hi NJC,

Previously I had the same axis media problem, but eventually got it resolved. Attempting to help a friend with the same problem (unable to register), I did the exact same things to his computer that I did to mine, but to no avail. He still has the problem. I thought that perhaps it's the same problem you referred to. However, I don't really understand what you mean by Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer 64 bit. Also, pinning Internet Explorer over Internet Explorer 64. Do you mean installing the IP and where would I find this info?

Thanks, Rich

Hi Rich,

Sorry about that. I was just listing the steps I took and didn't think about what it was really doing. Those are the steps taken on hubby's computer because he has the shortcut on the task bar. "pinnining" seems to be the Windows 7 jargon for placing a shorcut. So all I really said was be sure you are using Internet Explorer for the 32 bit not the 64 bit. We had lost any IE shortcut so I went to programs>internet explorer. It gave me a choice of Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer (64). This made all the difference for me.
