Installing Creative PD1110 Drivers in Windows 7

I wanted to plug-in an old Creative webcam (N10225, PD1110) into my Windows 7 PC, and Windows Update could not find appropriate drivers.

Asking the internets mostly led me to the various driver-download-after-lots-of-ads-and-registration sites, but I finally found a link on, which led me to the Creative product page of WebCam NX.

I started the driver installation software in XP compatibility mode, and Skype immediately recognized the camera.

However, the installer somehow froze with a dialog box open, and I had to end two install processes from the Task Manager.
