I just bought kinect sensor (USB / power supply), I followed the instructions tried as many combination was possible but without any result.
Machine specs: win 7, 64-bit , vvvv 27.2
last OPENNI drivers :
lately I tried to upgrade the Firmware with last ver. of Asus xtion but without any luck.
do you see primesens sensor in windows configuration pannel ? have you tried ms drivers maybe ? be sure that kinect drivers are correctly involved (if you have installed openni drivers thanks to berkel or zigfu it must be a problem of drivers links).
I realized that it depends (less or more) from your system (32 or 64) , so the solution for our 64bit machine was the same as mentioned by @tsou)) (brekel-all.in.one), for my 32bit laptop was to install from the beggining the newest drivers http://www.openni.org/Downloads/OpenNIModules.aspx as I found them in the list of ((forum:the-kinect-thread.
nothing is working neither OpenNI manual installation nor brekel.
Strange thing about that: i had already successfully connected my kinect to the Computer before with OpenNI.
But after a while of not using the camera its not working anymore and i changed nothing!
The System detects the kinect (even if i think the drivers do not get installed proper or maybe not all…!?) but VVVV and ReconstructMe do not and throw exceptions.
So i deleted OpenNI and installed Win SDK -> works out of the box with VVVV and ReconstructMe.
Kinect works with OpenNI on another Computer.
Its very strange because i really did not change anything…
Kinect works with the MS drivers. If I install the openNI drivers as written in the the kinect documentation Kinect (Devices OpenNI) tells me “Unable to connect to Device!”. I tryed to install another version of SensorKinect, also with Brekel package: in this case Kinect (Devices OpenNI) tells me nothing.
Is there someone that uses Kinect with openNI drivers and b27.2?
I do, but as I mentioned before both solutions-on different machines-worked for me. I recommend as many on this topic to uninstall completely the drivers, check your device manager again (that everything has been removed) and re-install them. Another way to test if drivers were succesfully installed is to try them via OSCeleton, worked for me.
for me kinect works finally (on winxp, v4beta28.1) with the following drivers:
SensorKinect091-Bin-Win32-v126.96.36.199 which is attached in the previous post by obernardoo
(with “SensorKinect093-Bin-Win32-v188.8.131.52” it never worked. the kinect node could not detect/connect to the camera)
i did not create/change the licenses.xml file (as written in the previous post from Alec).
was no need to do that.
