hi Ben,

firecapture is a funny program as it doesn't install any files, you need to download the files and put them in a folder in c/ programs, if you open up the downloaded firecapture files in the new folder you will see alot of exe files, yellow ones that look like they have a picture of jupiter on. one of these says firecapture webcam, make a shortcut to your desktop, and click on it, with luck it should run your webcam. the other exe files are for different cameras.
