Magic I Virtual Driver not found on computer

I recently purchase the window 7 on hp touchsmart 600 PC.  When I click the icon for Magic-1 web cam i get the following error message I am missing the virtual driver.  " We Cannot find "Magic-i  Virtual Driver" in your computer. Please reinstall Magic-i to fix the problem.  If the problem presists, please contact our technical support staff for help."

 

I thought all drivers are installed when your purchased the product.  How do I reinstall when it should have been installed before shipping?

:smileysurprised: I am having the same problem. However, It was working on Windows Vista and I just upgraded to Windows 7 and this error is occuring "Magic I Virtual Driver not found" at boot up. I have reinstalled it twice now and same problem. HP Tech Support should handle this soon, I hope.

I have the HP WEBCAM KQ245AA.

Re: Magic I Virtual Driver not found on computer

Trish, have you run HP Update to see if that helps?  Also, you may want to run Windows Update.  Many have found the appropriate drivers there.

Re: Magic I Virtual Driver not found on computer - FIX

:smileyvery-happy:

 

Here is the fix that I found on this forum, it works:

 

  • ·THIS FIXES THE PROBLEM! Thanks to marvinmartian.

OK I am now running magic-i on windows 7 where I previously was getting the "virtual driver not found" error.

Follow these steps:

1. Put in the install cd into the drive.

2. Go to "my computer" and right click on the drive with the cd and click "open"

3. find the "magic-i" folder and copy it to your desktop.

4. in the magic-i folder, run setup and choose the uninstall option. (this should uninstall everything from arcsoft)

5. reboot

6. Go into the magic-i folder on your desktop and RIGHT click on the "Setup" application.

7. Click "troubleshoot compatablity"

8. choose "troubleshoot program"

9. Choose "The program worked in earlier versions....."

10. Then choose "windows vista Service pack 2" and click next

11. Then choose "start program" and in about 10 seconds the installer will pop up.

12. Install the program.

That's it. It should work when you click on the magic-i3 icon on your desktop.

Re: Magic I Virtual Driver not found on computer - FIX

the install cd, is that for windows 7 or Magic-1?  I did not get either CD with my purchase of the PC.
