I was wondering if anyone might have a workaround with an issue we have with a Logitech C930e webcam that we would like to be using. If the correct settings can be set and retained we find it is a better camera than any of the other cameras we have tested. The problem is that the settings which are established through the built in Microsoft windows driver are not retained once the USB port has lost power (during reboot.)
We use our webcams on multiuser computers which we do not want to monitor constantly for reboots and do not want to leave the computers powered on all the time and would prefer not to consider hibernation.
We've found that the webcams store the options (autofocus, low light compensation) on the device. We assume this is why the setting is lost when the USB power to the device is dropped.
Does anyone have any expierence with this or does anyone have any programtic workarounds to set these settings during login?
