Hello all,
I am using Matlab r2014b, on my windows 8.1 PC. When I run the imaqtool, hardware browser cannot find anything. It is ought to find my built-in webcam, and another usb webcam.
Here is the output of webcamlist:
ans =
'Integrated Webcam'
'USB2.0 Camera'
I can run both the cameras with preview command, or take snapshots. However imaqtool does not find any of them.
Do you have any idea what the problem can be, and how it can be solved?

As from Matlab version R2014b, you must manually install the video adapters for your camera. Read: Installing the Support Packages for Image Acquisition Toolbox Adaptors.
