OSNews, Generic OSes "Visopsys (VISual OPerating SYStem) is an alternative operating system for PC-compatible computers, developed almost exclusively by one person, Andy McLaughlin, since its inception in 1997. Andy is a 30-something programmer from Canada, who, via Boston and San Jose ended up in London, UK, where he spends much of his spare time developing Visopsys. We had the great fortune to catch up with Andy via email and ask him questions about Visopsys, why he started the project in the first place, and where is it going in the future."

Did they say "USB Video Class", "UVC", or something along the lines of "Designed for Windows Vista/7"?

If not, they may be older designs. If so, then your problem is Windows's approach to drivers.

There are some devices where they will work with one of the drivers Windows has built-in, but because of the metadata their USB microcontrollers report, you need to craft your own INF file to make Windows aware of that.
