  2. i followed the first three troubleshooting steps given at the above links, the last one i could not understand, if performing the last step solves the problem, then please help me in doing that, else some other solution is acceptable too!

thanks!

Hi,

under http://developer.toradex.com/knowledge-base/usb-webcam-for-windows-ce#Troubleshooting you can see that you need to add some components to OS. Those are not included by default on Vybrid.

You can find binary BSP here → http://developer.toradex.com/software-resources/arm-family/windows-ce/board-support-packages

And workspace here → http://developer.toradex.com/software-resources/arm-family/windows-ce/platform-builder-workspaces

thanks for the quick reply.

just to be clear, i have to make my own OS, by adding the above mentioned BSP?

how will i achieve that?
do i need some software (platform builder?) to build OS image?

i have no idea about “adding components to OS”, (i know only how to use them ;P)

please provide me links where i can read about it OR please tell me basics so that i can get started.

thanks again

waiting for your helpful response

Hi,

We have built WEC2013 image with DSHOW components added. Please download from here.
Please unzip and program NK.bin over VF61 using Update tool or boot loader menu.
Please let me know is this solves the issue?
