Easy cam & Windows 7

I've installed the Windows 7 RTM on my Y730 and installed the drivers for my camera, but when I try to install the software to use the cam I get a pop-up that states "Lenovo EasyCapture can only be installed in Lenovo computers."

 

I've installed Veriface with no problems so I was surprised when i got this error message.  Any ideas?

Thank you for the /facepalm to myself...dunno why I didn't try that right away

 

Thanks again Smiley Happy

 

edit: just used easycapture to record a video of myself in an attempt to break into my own laptop with it.  And it worked.  The live detection prevented a photo from being used but veriface accepted the video.  Just a heads up for anyone using it.

 

I realize the likelihood of someone getting a video of you that would allow access through your veriface is pretty slim; but I've also been informed that, using the "ripple" effect from photoshop, one could produce an animated gif that would simulate a suitable video.  Also, my result and method may be unique, using a video being played on a matte finish laptop screen.

Re: Easy cam & Windows 7

If someone looks enough like you, they'll also pass. My little bro is only 12, and I'm almost 6 years older, but he still got past with his face 5 times out of 5. After that, I just uninstalled veriface.

Hmm, maybe you need to turn on the camera via FN + ESC. Then try installing the driver.

That's wierd, its probably some setting you missed. Worse case is that your camera was installed upside down but I doubt that.
