Software won't install on XP?

OK, so I have an Intel PC Camera from 2000 (The CS430) when I first bought it, it was about $200 brand new and came with this software CD so that you can easily use it. For the longest time, I had it installed to Windows XP without the software because WinXP automatically detected a driver for it, and I only needed it for taking pictures by accessing it through the My Computer folder on desktop and making videos for youtube with WMM.

Now I want to try connecting my games to it and VCR with it's S-Video in compatibility on the camera. It works, but the screen is not big enough with what I was utilizing at normal. So I decided to use the software it came with. Software said that it required Win98, so I told it to continue anyway, install program started up fine, until after I selected yes for agreeing with the license agreement, it said that Win95 was not supported and that I needed Win98FE, Win98SE, or WinME, WinNT currently not supported, then it closed. Is there a way to bypass this?

See how to's on compatibility mode.You may have to run both installer and the program in compatibility mode. I normally do to start.


In case no good see how to's on restore points.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I read some other similar questions over a long search and you can use this compatibility mode thing you can do with the .exe file. I opened it's properties, went to compatibility and set it for Win98/ME and clicked OK. It worked afterward. Thanks, it's working perfectly now.

Or check the manufacturer's website and see if they have updated drivers.

Jennifer, I have the most updated drivers. It appears to work after trying the .exe compatibility trick that Jefro showed me, thank you both for the help!
