Hi Klaus,

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately with our Logitech web-cam on 
Windows 2000, I couldn't get the build to work with it. I'm quite new to 
Revolution though so I may have missed something in the build process. I 
did check the "Use Video for Windows" option but none of the buttons 
responded. I'll keep trying though since I have a few days left on the 
trial version.

Would you happen to know if it matters that the web-cam we're using is USB?

Thanks again,
