Logitech webcam software crashes Launcher_Main (The correct fix)


Super Simple Fix for the HD Pro Webcam C920

Note: Does not work for all Logitech webcams! No you don’t have to uninstall Quicktime or any other software as some uninformed YouTube videos suggest. This crashing problem is simply caused by Microsoft’s recent Anniversary update to Windows 10.

There’s a simple key you can add to your Windows registry (No reboot is required)

You can do it yourself using Regedit. Navigate to the following location:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Media Foundation\Platform and create a new DWORD with the name EnableFrameServerMode and give it a value of 0.

The easiest way

is to right-click on this file and select Save Link As (this text is slightly different for each browser) and save it to your Desktop. Then just double-click on the Launcher_Main_Fix.reg file and it will make the changes for you. Someone has suggested to re-boot your computer after doing this – I didn’t need to as the webcam software started working right away.

Should you not want to click on a registry file update you can copy and paste the text at the end of this post into a text editor and save it as a .reg file and then double-click on it yourself.

I would like to say thanks to the people who have helped me find this solution, and to Logitech I would like to say WTF? Why couldn’t  you release this fix yourself? Instead of doing nothing at all and waiting on Microsoft to release a fix – To your support team. This simply isn’t good enough and you have left 1000’s of your paying customers without a working webcam. To the completely inexperienced people with ‘solutions’ on their YouTube channel: You are greatly misleading people, no one needs to uninstall anything. Please take your videos down and stop misleading people.



You can copy this into Notepad or other simple text editor:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Media Foundation\Platform]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Media Foundation\Platform\EVR]

Retropie MAME – Controller RANDOMLY not working?

I’m using a DualShock 4 controller borrowed from my PlayStation 4. I’ve used this controller for 100’s of hours of gameplay on the PS4 and never had a problem with it. In fact it even works on EmultaionStation without any problem at all.

However when using it to play games on MAME4ALL for RetroPie it’s operation seems to be entirely intermittent, random almost. I’ve checked there are no loose or wonky connections. I’ve even swapped the USB cable.

Eeek! That was it.

By changing the USB cable I managed to fix it. I must have at least 15-20 USB cables for the different gadgets I have and it’s amazing how different the shapes and sizes ‘the other end of the USB cable’ has. Super thin, a bit thicker, a bit thicker still…

The thing is with the PlayStation 4 the signal sent back from the DualShock 4 is always transmitted wirelessly – even when you have the USB cable connected. All, in fact the USB cable does is charge the battery of the DS4 an nothing else. So even playing for 100’s of hours on the PlayStation and never having had the controller not respond makes perfect sense because all the DS4 needs is some level of battery and a wireless connection.

With MAME however the signal is only transmitted through USB and a loose, wonky, wrong size or not quite perfect fit will cause problems – if the signal is lost, even for a fraction of a second, that’s pretty much game over.

So lesson learned.

Of coarse what I would like to do is build my own mini arcade game desktop cabinet with proper arcade buttons and joystick but that’s for another post.

Peace be with you peeps.
