I have a generic (no brand) electronic microscope here from China.

While it might not be laboratory quality, its actually very good for intended purpose.  

Connecting it direct to monitor via VGA port - the image appears almost immediately.

However, I want to connect it to a Win 7 system to take capture image files. How do I do this?

It has a VGA port and a "USB out" port.

I assume this should just work on the same principle as a webcam? Do I need to download a special application?

(BTW, when connected via USB it does seem to be recognised - no exclamation marks in device manager.)
