Webcam built-in driver question

I just bought a new Dell, so I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. There
is a built-in webcam. Im using the disc provided by Dell (Dell Webcam
Software), however during the installation, a pop-up window says to make sure
the webcam USB cable is connected to the computer. What does this mean? The
webcam is already build-in to the computer? This is preventing the
installation of the software.
Thank you for you help

What does Dell technical support say?
They sold you the hardware, and it doesn't work. They are obligated to fix
it.
Normally drivers for built-in peripherals are installed prior to shipment.
What leads you to believe driver installation is necessary?

(1) This is the wrong forum to ask the question, this is a
programmer/developer forum for the microsoft .net framework, however
(2) As a DELL owner, I know they tend to pre-install any software you need
-- so you probably don't need to install the software you have. DELL gives
you those disks as a back-up in case your system crashes.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
