I did them same because I have a "Vista IM" (prodid:0x4052). However, as 
it was revealed, it has a different chipset:
* ov519 (according to http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/cameras/index.php)
* ov530 (from the V0260530.set file of the win. driver package; try grep 
-i name).

According to the url of the 'macam' project (see above) the "Video IM Pro"
has a controller chipset of type M5603C.

So I hardly think that the spca5xx/gspca driver will good for you.

The qbik.ch database contains some devices with similar chipset, but 
unfortunately their support seems to be in very poor state, AFAIS.

Good Luck!
