However, the instructions are dated for installing on windows, they are meant for the original X-box kinect sensor not the one dedicated to windows. Please see Ramsri Goutham’s excellent tutorial: Basically, there is a different method to install the correct drivers for the Borensteun for Windows product.

All the instructions for the OpenNI software in the book likely predate the Kinect for Windows product and fail to mention that the most common problem now has nothing to do with x86 vs. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
