MSI CR460 Drivers and Details

MSI CR460 series basically use windows 8 or 8.1 as it default operating system. You can also downgrade into Windows 7 since MSI also released drivers and support for Windows 7. The specific model name may varies, example you may own MSI CR460 (MS-145A), regardless of the specific model name, all CR460 series uses the same driver sets.

Changes I made from the original driver list:
1. Arrange the drivers installation in order. So please install according to the order given.
2. Exclude certain utility (which I think not important).
3. I do not listed the driver version because you can see the driver version on the download link itself.
4. If you are using Windows 8.1, just install windows 8 drivers.

HP Webcam/Camera Driver (Universal)

If you went to HP download and support page and does not find the webcam driver listed, you can download and install the HP universal webcam driver (T/C apply). Base on my experience, Hp didn't list the webcam driver for model which the webcam driver automatically installed along windows installation. But in certain cases windows did not install the webcam drivers.
