OpenNI + Kinect (getting set up on Windows)
Posted on January 26, 2011
I have recently been hacking around with a kinect camera + OpenNI + PrimeSense NITE components and initially it was quite challenging to get the software bits and pieces installed correctly. I got it working but then needed to rebuild my PC, soooo……
Since I didn’t find a package which carries out the whole thing, and the prospect of carrying out these repetitive tasks again prompted me to create a program which does most of the hard work on Windows.
Most of it is based on instructions from
but I couldn’t get this to work so also used
and an installer from here
So, just in case it helps someone else here it is….
Please uninstall any related installations before commencing..
Unzip KinectInstall.zip and run KinectInstall.exe.
Then plug your Kinect camera into a USB port on your computer and try to run some of the demos which are installed with OpenNI and NITE. Hopefully they will work!
(Disclaimer : Use at your own risk.)
This is what it does;
This program will automate the installs for setting up a kinect camera with OpenNI and Prime Sense NITE. It will install current (26.01.2011) stable binaries from here
PrimeSense OpenNI-compliant components
