Built In Camera coming up as default imaging device, how do I disable?
Posted on 2013-06-04
Here's the situation . We have a legacy program that interfaces with Informatik Image Driver to import .tiff images into a database. This has always worked great. We got new laptops which have built in webcams. The issue is that when I go into the application it now defaults to the webcam with no other options.
-No there are no settings within the application to choose a device.
-Disabling the webcam in device manager just produces "Unable to connect to camera"
-Uninstalling the drivers produces the same message.
Is there a way to tell Windows 7 x32 within the registry not to default to the webcam as an imaging device? If I plug a physical scanner into the computer, it will pick the scanner. Working with the Informatik Image Driver (3.60) does not, and this is our only option at this point due to licensing and what we already own.
