Intel USB Video Camera III compatibility with Windows 10

I have an Intel USB Video Camera III which was working fine until I installed Windows 10 64 bit on my computer. Now the camera no longer works, and is only recognized by the computer as a "USB video device". In Device Manager, under Properties, I get the following message: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)
{Operation Failed} The requested operation was unsuccessful."

I then went on the Intel website to see if I could get the proper driver for the camera, and all I get there is the most unhelpful following message: "There are currently no downloads available for Intel USB Video Camera III"

Is there a way to get this camera working on a Windows 10 64 bit computer? Thank you.

In device manager, try to update the driver by selecting "update driver" and "search automatically". Windows will use the internet and sometimes finds a driver, then.

you can also test if it works on another windows 10 64 bit system

The camera only goes by the name Intel USB Video Camera III, no model number. I tried the suggested steps and came up empty. I also tried it on a Windows 10 32 bit system with the same result, although in this case it recognized it by name. But it would not open.

I also tried several websites purporting to have drivers for Windows 10 for this camera. Turns out they didn't, or wanted me to pay a fee to access their gazillion drivers (probably none of which would correspond).

I've reluctantly come to the conclusion that the camera is incompatible with Windows 10. Thank you for your assistance.

i assume ity did work on windows 7 or 8?
 just to be sure - test if it's still working there if possible; from a live cd, or install on another disk

Please share the hardware ID property as device manager presents it on the details tab. It would surprise me very much if we couldn't locate a driver.

=========
if you have  unknown devices in device manager, you can use this procedure to identify them :



3- Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:    pcilookup.com
This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  
Check the manufacturer's website first or google them - or post them here
