Frequently asked questions

FAQ1: V-check is identifying my WIN XP system as Win 2000

Problem description:
When I install my camera (PCVC720K, PCVC730K, PCVC740K or PCVC750K) on a
Windows XP computer, V-check is identifying the system as Win 2000 and stops
the installation.

The problem is caused when a 1.0x CDROM (which is not Windows XP compatible) is
installed on a Windows XP machine (after the incompatibility message of the
system, which appears with PCVC720K, PCVC730K and PCVC740K, has been overruled).

In case of PCVC750K:
- Just run toucamwebupdate13.exe and follow the instructions

In case of PCVC720K, PCVC730K or PCVC740K:
1. Execute a Windows System Restore
(Start/All programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore)
2. Choose a restore point before the date of the 1st camera installation
attempt and restore the system. (If no restore point is available then
Windows XP has to be reinstalled)
3. Run toucamwebupdate13.exe and follow the instructions.
