Can I use Kinect for XBOX 360 for development on Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Kinect for Xbox with a power/USB adapter.

    When I plug it into Windows 7 SDK sample apps are reporting "Sensor not connected" and in the list of hardware I see only NUI Motor and Audio.

    Is there some trick I need to apply to make Kinect for Xbox work on Windows 7 and develop for it,

    or do I need to consider buying a separate sensor.

    I have usb cord and adapter plugged in.

  • I am using SDK 1.5.

    I got this to work on physical Windows 7, but I am still having problems with Windows 7 running in Parallels.

    Virtual environment may be a confounder with USB binding ...
