obs-vitualcam-module32.dll is still in use, prevents upgrade to 26.1


New Member
Hey everyone, I'm a new member to the forums. I'm posting because I'm unable to update OBS to version 26.1. I get the below error message when I attempt to update. I am not sure what application may be using this, but I have tried restarting my PC and only running OBS. I still get the error message.


Can someone assist me in identifying what application I may need to close, or provide another work around? If you'd like more details, please provide instructions on how to retrieve logs or anything else and I'll post them.

Generally an application which opens video capture devices will be responsible for this, such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Skype, etc. Make sure any programs in the notification area / tray are also closed.

If you still can't find it, upgrading to 26.1 by using the installer from https://obsproject.com/download will identify the exact application.
