Hello Eric,
first of all, thank you for this script.

I wanted to know if it is possible to access and modify (directly in Matlab and not through the configuration display window) the characteristics of the webcam I use (Maxxtro webcam 1.3) ?

Do you have any clue of how to do that ?

Thank you by advance for your response. Have a nice day.

Some hints for Visual Studio 2008 Express & R2009a:

(1) It's not necessary to install SDK 2003 (exept of VfM-project).

(2) It seems to be necessary to modify the configuration options (C++=>output-files=>object file name & =>browse file) from "$(IntDir)/" to "$(IntDir)\"

(3) The generate manifest option should be enabled in all configurations.

(4) It seems to be useful to install also VC++ 2008 redistributable package.
