If CU is set to use the Quickcam, and it doesn't see it when it starts up,
then you won't be able to choose any other drivers. Go back to system.ini
and make the se100 the msvideo= entry, and change the quickcam driver to be
msvideo1 or msvideo2. You should then be able to run CU and it should
choose the msvideo= driver.

The other way to fix this would be to edit the c:\windows\cuseeme.ini file
with notepad (see below)

[Capture Settings]
CaptureDeviceName=QuickCam video capture driver

Change the capturedeviceindex to the number on the msvideo line that has the
se100 driver. You COULD (but don't have to) change the capturedevicename to
match the SE100 name, but I don't think this is absolutely necessary. For
example, if your system.ini file shows msvideo2=se100cap.drv then change
your cuseeme.ini to say capturedeviceindex=2. This has fixed the problem
for several people that have come to my IRC channel for help.
