You won't see the "Video" tab until CU sees a video device. Try the
following steps:

1) Run the QuickCam installer.

2) Make sure the capture driver, called QUICKCAM.DRV, is in the
/WINDOWS/SYSTEM directory.

3) Check the file SYSTEM.INI (in the /WINDOWS directory) and make sure
there's an entry in the [drivers] section for msvideo like this:


If you've had another capture driver installed you might see another
driver listed as msvideo and another entry, msvideo1=3Dquickcam.drv. In
this case you should switch the quickcam to be msvideo and the other
driver to be msvideo1.

4) Use the Win'95 Control Panel for Multimedia. On the 'Advanced' section,
double click on the Video Capture Devices icon. You should see an
entry for QuickCam. Double click on the icon for QuickCam. Make sure
the "Use the video capture device" choice is selected.

5) Restart Win'95.
