    Hey all,

    After upgrading last week, to Build 14.0.8064.206, everytime I try to start a Video Call with someone either they can't see me or themselves, or I can't see me or them. Essentially at least one of the views will not be working and is replaced by the 'no webcam' icon. Signing out & back in again doesn't solve the problem, rather it changes the view that doesn't work (i.e. at first I can't see the cam view of me on my comp. Then, after signing out and in, I can now see me, but the other person can't). I hope that makes some sort of sense.

    Also, the 'View my webcam option is greyed out, but from running Audio & Video Setup on the main WLM window, the cam seems to be functioning correctly.

    I'm not too sure what further info you would like me to give, but am more than happy to produce anything if required. I am running XP MCE 2005 (SP3) and using a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 webcam if that helps any.

    Thanks in advance
