Enable Motion F5 and F5v camera to take pictures while in portrait mode

Recently, a customer asked how they could take pictures while in portrait mode. By default, the Motion C5, F5, C5v and F5v don't automatically rotate the camera when the display is rotated. Interestingly, this is easy to do but comes disabled by default.

Here is what you do:

Go to Start-->All Programs-->Intel (folder)-->MCA Platform Drive (folder)-->MCA Configuration Editor

Then, on the left side menu, click on Camera Plug-in.

Now, on the right, look for Enable Portrait Mode and set this to True instead of False.

BAM! Done!

Many thanks to Nathan Kuykendall of Motion Computing for providing the answer.
