windows 10 webcam failure

I have a Dell system with a Microsoft  LifeCam usb camera, and have been using this with Connect for a few years.

I upgraded to W10, and now although the camera works fine in other applications (Skype, Camera (Windows viewer), ..), in Connect it just shows up as a black window. I then tried an alternate USB camera, (logitech QuickCam Pro) which also works in other applications, but shows black in Connect. Connect recognized both of them (select camera: ...), but doesn't work with either.

I read one note in the forums, that Connect would not support over 640-x480, but neither of these cameras will set that low, and again have both been working for the last 1-2 years.
