Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 driver install for Windows 7

This won’t be of interest to very many of you (or: any of you), but I wanted to put this info on the web for others who will eventually be looking for it via Google, so ignore it if it doesn’t apply, and get lost!

Logitech has not provided, and I assume, will not be providing Windows 7 drivers for the oldish QuickCam Pro 4000 (which is still a perfectly fine piece of hardware, so why should I have to buy another one?)

It doesn’t matter. Do this: download the most recent Vista software, and run it. In the final step, the camera will fail to show an image, but ignore that. The software should be installed just fine, the only thing you’ll be missing is the driver.

Some people have had success getting that driver working by simply going through the normal install process, and then unplugging their camera and moving it to another USB port. Windows then detects the device and locates the driver on its own. But in case this doesn’t work for you (it didn’t work for me):

Go into your Control Panel, open “Hardware and Sound”, and then select “Device Manager” under “Devices and Printers” (or just “Device Manager”, if your Control Panel shows all items). You will see an “unknown device” marked by a yellow warning symbol. Double-click on that sucker, then select “Update driver”, choose “Browse my computer for driver software”, and navigate to (or cut and paste) the folder C:\Program Files\Logitech\QuickCamWebInstall\Drivers — make sure the “Include subfolders” box is checked. Hit “Next”, and Windows should install your device. This probably works for other webcam models as well.

You’re welcome. And Logitech, you’re lazy jerks!

  4. Thanks for the guideline. It gave me enough hope that I went and found the vista software installation from Logitech and installed it on my W7 Pro system. Surprisingly enough, it worked right out of the box, picture and all. The device manager shows both the microphone and the camera as QC Pro 4000.

  5. Thank you! You are the king of all webcam failures! Kisses your way!

  6. Logitech had the best webcam but the worst drives
    techinical support are really lazy, they can't update a single driver for win7

  10. Hello I used WINRAR to Extract the install .exe file to its own folder (qc1051enu_x64) then double clicked on it then to Quickcam then to x64 then double click on Quickcam. thats it. by NextClick :)

  11. Just bought a new Windows 7 (64-bit) computer, plugged in the Logitech camera, and Windows found and installed drivers for it automatically. Tested it, and so far it works fine. Googled it and Microsoft says: “Compatible, No action required; This product installs automatically without extra software.”

  13. I agree with You!!

    LOGITECH! YOU’RE LAZY JERKS!!!!

  14. doesn’t work for me ..still no drivers for my QuickCam Pro 4000…I do have windows7 64bit and everything but my system refuse to install that drivers /whar else can I do ?

  15. Somebody else with 64 posted this: “Hello I used WINRAR to Extract the install .exe file to its own folder (qc1051enu_x64) then double clicked on it then to Quickcam then to x64 then double click on Quickcam. thats it. by NextClick :).”

  16. thanks a lot it works perfectly on 7 64BITS

  17. Candice answer works, but I just had to reinstall Windows 7 for my 64 bit machine. In doing so I forgot to unplug my Pro 4000 web cam Windows automaticly found the drivers for it, I do not have all the fancy program things but heck I don’t remember really ever using them. Oh I just found the original sales slip in 2003 and it is still working just fine. We use it twice a week to chat with our kids in Calf and New Zealand really nice to see grand kids that we wouldnt see if it weren’t for this Media

    But Logitech should be more pro active and support their products not just try to force folks into having to buy a newer model.
    Sorry for rambling on.

  18. Yes, I believe that any of the several complicated solutions described in my post and these comments may no longer be necessary. I moved my camera to a laptop running Windows 7 recently and it installed automatically. Took long enough, eh?

  19. I can not install the program it tells me it isn’t suitable for my current operation system. What do I do?

  20. Thank you, works great!!! Logitech are lazy jerks, big time!!!

  21.  man first thing thanks i just unplugged i just read this:Some people have had success getting that driver working by simply going through the normal install process, and then unplugging their camera and moving it to another USB port. Windows then detects the device and locates the driver on its own. But in case this doesn’t work for you (it didn’t work for me). and i tried to see if im lucky. and it worked thank you man thank you.

  22. Hi Candice, thanks from the UK  for the post and subsequent thread!  Was beginning to piss me off no end this one. 

    W7 x64. Got the software in the end  by extracting the installer method (Homie774). Extract the contents of the Vista x64 software from Logiturd. Head for ‘QuickCam’ directory >> x64 >> QuickCam.msi.  The actual  driver is at Windows Update,  once downloaded into W7 driver database you plug the cam in and it detects it fine. The software you’ve just installed is in the usual place(s) to use.  …for anyone with W7 x64 who can’t be bothered scrolling.   :p
