Gateway webcam support

edited January 2012 in Support
I'm just learning this program and have several issues, this one I haven't seen answered yet.
I'm using a Gateway laptop with built in webcam. When I tried the Video Annotation, CamStudio reports it cannot find a camera. I tried running the camera first, but then it says camera in use by another program????
Is there a setup step that will allow the program to find the camera, or is this incompatable?

    CamStudio does seem to have problems finding onboard webcams - we're currently working our way through the main buglist but will try to take a look at this.

    Which version of Windows and CamStudio are you using?

    If you're using Vista or Win7, is CamStudio running in XP Compatibility Mode?
