I have a Windows Server 2012 server computer. I tried to install a webcam driver from Logitech to view the camera. The camera is old one and doesn't have new drivers (latest for Vista). I tried to install XP drivers in compability mode but it detected my OS and didn't install. Then I tried the Vista ones in Vista compability mode. It installed but I wasn't able to connect the camera for viewing. It only showed a gray screen instead of live stream from the camera.
I tried to restart the machine to see if it would work. After logging in (as an administrator) I wasn't (and still aren't) able to see anything but a black screen and the cursor. Even waiting (I waited about an hour) doesn't help.
This one proves that the drivers weren't good for the OS. I restarted again and went to safe mode. I opened Control panel to remove the program and the driver I had installed. I wasn't successful with uninstalling the software. It said Windows Installer doesn't exists. I searched the internet and got a way to remove it from the registry. It worked.
Then I tried to uninstall the driver itself. I clicked Uninstall/Repair and it started to do something. A dialog came up and asked if I wanted to delete the previous version as well. I'm not sure what it means because I don't have anything related installed. I selected yes. It started to remove it (at least I think it should have started) and the progress bar went almost 100 %. It freezed and went fullscreen with a dark gray screen. I was able to exit it by switching the window with ALT + Tab (I couldn't access the task bar) and I terminated the process.
So I wasn't able to delete the drivers. What should I do to remove the inoperative driver?
