Hello David, If Its The SPC 900NC Then It Should Work Fine Without Any Need Of New Drivers.. It Will Install Itself, But If Its Any Other Type Have A Look On The Windows 7 Compatibility Centre... http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx

ANy Toucam you will need to upgrade the firmware so it looks like a SPC900NC then it will work in windows 7 with the correct drivers and running in administrator mode (no need for compatability mode)...

FYI To upgrade the firmware you will need access to a non windows 7 or vista PC.... as you will firstly need to connect as a toucam

Hi all,

I have recently bought Celestron Neximage Camera and have realised it doesn't work on my Windows 7 P.C. The Celestron website only gives the driver download for Vista and as far as I can tell there is no available update for Wndows 7. However, I found a website that has a link to a driver that is compatible with a Philips Camera that also works on the Neximage. If anyone needs it here is the link to the download and instructions. My camera now works fine in both the Registax and Amcap programs.
