How do I incorporate webcam ability (using CameraCaptureUI) into my VB WinForm apps? RRS feed

  • Question

  • WHAT I HAVE:

    Visual Basic 2019, .NET 4.6.1, WinForms

    MY PROBLEM:

    I'm trying the incorporate web-cam functionality into my VB WinForms project. I've read that the CameraCaptureUI class allows one to implement it simply. The problem is, I can't access--using Imports/Add Reference--the Windows namespace, and its various sub-names spaces like Windows.Storage and Windows.Media.Capture. The help says that the Windows.Storage namespace is in the assemblies "windows.dll" and "windows.storage.dll"--but there appears to be no "windows.dll" on my hard drive, and there are several "windows.storage.dll" files--none of which appear to be usable with VS.

    Am I missing something?! Please give me an answer ASAP--preferably in VB.NET (although I can convert to that).
