    problem solved by removal of old software..
    there was a left-over installation of the lws (Logitech Webcam) software still on the system
    which was preventing the correct installation of the driver in Windows10

    by using a 3rd-party un-installer, I managed to scrub it out of the registry,
    thus allowing the Windows10 auto-update to do it's stuff and install the software correctly

    Logitech has not yet produced Windows 10 compatible versions of their webcam software as mentioned in this Logitech forum thread.
    perhaps after Windows 10 is officially released by the end of July, there will be a new version of the Logitech webcam software that will officially support Windows 10.

    guess there will be increasing pressure on manufacturers to get up to speed, as the 29th approaches..
    - I'm toying with the idea of adding an Xbox to my home set-up, the Win10 app looks clever..
    - and some of those Nokia Windows phones are looking really neat..

    PROBLEM SOLVED. Raphael Riveras'a Win 10 registry tweek WORKED. After struggling for hours with other methods this did the trick in less than a minute. Finally!


    Windows 10 Update Borked Millions of Webcams. Here's a Fix.

    By Andrew E. Freedman | August 22, 2016 02:57 pm contributor Rafael Rivera claims to have found a registry hack that solves the problem today, though we have not been able to test it:

    "If you are comfortable tweaking the registry, make this change. HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Media Foundation\Platform, add DWORD “EnableFrameServerMode” and set to 0, you will then need to restart Skype."

    It's a wonder that this didn't get more attention earlier. After all, tons of people use Windows Insider to try out new features early. We don't know how many -- if any -- experienced this issue early, but if they did, then this is a big mistake that should have been remedied earlier.

    Did the fix work for you? Is your webcam messed up? Let us know in the comments.
