  • Hi nomadics

    I had the same problem, but have solved it by downloading the speech language pack from Microsoft.

    The shapegame readme file says in the PREREQUISITES section: "Kinect English Language Pack: MSKinectLangPack_enUS.msi (available in the same location as the Kinect for Windows SDK Beta)."

    It was not part of my SDK installation, but a separate download solved it.

    Give it a go - it works perfect on my machine.

    best regards

  • It worked for me too. As Peter suggested, the read me file says:

    - Speech Platform Runtime (v10.2) x86. Even on x64 platforms, the x86 must be used because the Microsoft Research Kinect SDK Beta runtime is x86.
    - Speech Platform SDK (v10.2)
    - Kinect English Language Pack: MSKinectLangPack_enUS.msi (available in the same location as the Kinect for Windows SDK Beta).

  • Nomadics, is the problem solved by the suggestions below, or do you still have an issue? If you still have an issue, please try to compile ShapeGame sample from VisualStudio yourself (it should be found under C:\Users\Public\Documents\Microsoft Research KinectSDK Samples\NUI\ShapeGame). Then, put a breakpoint in the constructor of Recognizer class and step through. That should give you more information. If you see any suspicious debug output or exceptions are thrown, please let me know what the exception call stack is and paste the debug output here and I'll try to help you more.

    Hope this helps!

    I'm here to help
