Hello,
Thnaks for posting this option!
The links to download aren't working. Also, I have a Win 7 64 Bit, and a Kinect 1st generation. Would that work, if I manage to get access to the working links?

Thanks,
Moses

Your instructions failed to mention the kinect mod is 32-bit and that you have to install 32-bit drivers on windows 7 64-bit for the kinect device to work using above instructions. You might want to mention that in next magazine issue. I got it working though

thanks for the tutorial.

I realized it reconizes it in device manager but niviewer gives the message:

"PrimeSense/SensorV2/5.0.1.32: The device is not connected!"

What am i doing wrong?

 

Anyone willing to help please post.

I have an msi 64-bit windows computer with intel but the drivers in the folders for this install dont have intel 64-bit listed. How do i get 64-bit intel drivers? It only shows 64-bit amd drivers. Anyone get it to work on intel? Please share a article on another website or article writer post a link to intel drivers please(64-bit).

I had part of this installed already with the Kinect recognized but unable to make it do anything at all.

Thanks to you I now have Kinect working on my computer.

A free programm called Miku Miku Dance has a Kinect button on it already.

Now it works on my computer. This program can now do live 3d motion capture.

Needs some cleanup to make it perfect, but this program was made to make motion and render it in 3d. I need to get this working with my robots now.

Thanks

Someone really needs to make an application that will allow you to put the kinect backwards on your tv and make it look like you are standing behing an X-ray screen, like in The Terminator.

I had problems getting this to work on my 64-bit intel machine have any modified instructions for that? The kinect sensor driver is where is ran into my problem and it wouldnt install. The OpenNI program installed just fine though. Is their a intel driver install even if its manual exe copier?

Can you email me modified instructions for the kinect senor when you find out how.

Awesome article! This is the kind of stuff I want on MaxPC (and less tablet BS etc) . Is there a site with an overview or something of the (other) different programs for the kinect on PC? I'd like to get an idea what this can be used for, apart from the sheer hacky awesomness that is..

This would be a lot more interesting to me if MS hadn't gimped the Kinect so bad... I mean, would it really have killed them to use at least one HD cam in the thing?

Probably not, but for an HD camera what sort of features does the connect gain?  The only thing I can see is video chats looking nicer.

That is kinda the point. With this thing, I need to buy an HD webcam for chats in addition to the kinect for interface. One of the selling points of the old ZCam was that it could do an automatic bluescreen effect live in chat.
