Default Dell Latitude ST Questions - 05-03-2012, 09:46 PM

I own one of these now for about 3 months or so. If you have questions about it, please feel free to post here. I'll be happy to help with questions and/or concerns.

Hi dootndo2, we recently purchased some of these at work and I'm trying to come up with a nice fast Win7 image for it. Have you had any luck getting the camera to work with the Dell app, Webcam Central? We let one of our users try one and of course one of his first questions was how to take a picture or a video. Dell gave me a link to a Webcam Central install but I get the message "Please plug in a supported device." when I load it. I have downloaded and installed the Dell Driver for the camera.

Any good tablet tweaking tips?

Thanks,
Zack

I received it with Windows 7 installed. I immediately installed Windows 8 Developer Preview. The camera software worked post installation of the Dell software.

There is a reinstallation guide here:
Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

Here is the package for the Camera:
Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

I would recommend ensuring you have the latest BIOS and resetting the BIOS as well.

On Windows 8, the camera installed as "Integrated Webcam" using the Microsoft Driver. When I open the Dell Camera App, in the bottom left corner, I can choose the device. I have:

1. Integrated WebCam
2. Laptop Integrated WebCam 5M
3. Laptop Integrated WebCam HD

There is a rotation button on the upper right that allows you to switch between the front and rear camera. The LED next to the camera should also light up when the camera is turned on.

Also, when I go into Skype, I get the same options for cameras.

Perhaps try checking for errored device installations in Device Manager and reinstalling the Camera App.

Default Latitude ST - 07-20-2012, 09:20 AM

Hello,

Just got myself one of them toys, looking good, just can find an actual user manual anywhere and I have some questions:

1) If I want to use this as a Phone (I got a SIM card today), how can I do it?
2) If I want to take a photo with the 5M camera, how do I do that?
If I want to use it for a GPS, how do I do that?


Any help will be appreciated

Cheers
Alex

For the manual, go here:

Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

Select the Latitude ST as the product. On the following screen, one of the links is Manuals.

1. The Tablet is not a phone per se. You should use Skype if you want it to make phone calls. If you have the WWAN setup, it is used for High Speed data. The SIM card is used to connect to your provider.
2. Download and install the Dell Camera software. Open it and change the camera. There is an icon that looks like a camera with two circular arrows around it. That is what is used to switch.
3. I believe if your WWAN has Gobi, you can use A-GPS that is provided by the cell carrier. I currently use a Garmin Bluetooth GPS device.

Unhappy Latitude ST - camera - 07-22-2012, 09:56 AM

Thanks for the feedback.
I downloaded the driver for the camera : NJ0X3_A04_ZPE.exe
I tried installing it, it said : Close SKYPE first then continue
I did that, it uninstalled the old version, then I installed again
All wen OK, started SKYPE again, it works fine and also has 2 cameras to select from.

BUT - nowhere in Programs that I can see any Camera, nor can I find any EXE in the MSI folder to launch it.
In control panel, it shows among the programs installed, but, I can't find anywhere to start it...
I am lost here!
Any help will be appreciated

Cheers
Alex

The software is called Dell Webcam Central. If successfully installed, should be on the Start Menu. If you're using Windows 8, it may not be pinned by default. Gesture up from the bottom and select All Apps on the Start Screen Toolbar and look for it by name. Or do a search.

Default Latitude ST - camera - 07-24-2012, 08:54 AM

Hello again,

I am using Windows 7.
I didn't just look in the start menu - I checked in "Program Files", nothing.
If you have this working, can you please email me the EXE as an attachment (just rename it to say TXT or else the email program will not accept it)

My direct email is : alex.evans@iinet.net.au

Cheers

Here is the location of the Camera Software. It is not very well notated on the site.

Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

When you look in the downloads section, select Windows 7 32 bit and look for:

Dell SRV,SW,CMRA,LAT,ST

Hi,

Yes, if you look at my previous post, you will see that I did that already several times.
The link you are pointing me to, downloads "NJ0X3_A04_ZPE.exe" which I did , unpacked and installed by now for the 4th time.

Can you please look in your Program Files-> SMI->Virtual Webcam->Driver Package sub folder and check out which EXE files you have in there, I am missing one of them that you probably have. I have the five following files:

executebatch-win.exe
selectcamera.exe
smyregistrytool.exe
smiservicewrapper.exe
xyntservice.exe

If you have the same, it means that on my tablet I have already all the software modules, but something else is wrong???

Cheers
Alex
