Solved Intel Camera CS 630 works in Windows 7 Professional

Specs: Windows 7
I was able to get my Intel Camera CS630 to work in Windows 7 Pro. I first downloaded Windows XP mode and Virtual PC. I ran the emulation to update the 122 updates needed and rebooted.

After rebooting I then downloaded the XP driver for the camera from http://download.cnet.com/CS630-XP-E... Be careful not to also download the spyware that comes with this, you must decline all but the CS630.exe file.

From the Windows XP environment I went to the C drive for windows 7 found my user account and access the download folder. Copied the file to the desktop of the Windows XP OS and ran the file as local administrator. At the top of the emulator menu is the USB option to attach the device once you have it plugged in. Once the driver completes it creates file in the temp folder of the local emulated drive. The steps to install the driver are as follows:
The Intel PC Camera is not connected into the USB port on the computer.
1.Plug the Intel PC Camera into your computer’s USB port.
2.The “Add New Hardware Wizard” will appear, Click Next
Note: If the "Found New Hardware Wizard" does not launch, please use Scenario 2.
3.Select “Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)” Click Next
4.Select “Search for the best driver in these locations.”
◦Uncheck “Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM…)"
◦Check “Include this location in the search"
5.Click Browse, select "C:\temp\CS630_XP", Click OK, Click Next
6.Click Finish

I was able to unload all pictures I had captured to the device and move them to the pictures folder on my Windows 7 profile.
