Question about CPU load and runtime with kinect applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    i have a simple question about kinect applications.

    Is it possible to run .exe  kinect application without installing Visual studio ?

    Also when running a simple code, the CPU load is very hight about 80% or higher. Besides, I think that the debug mode wastes run time.

    is there a way to reduce it ?

  • You just need Kinect runtime installed on the host PC to run a released .exe file. Visual studio is not necessary to run the executable files. 

    Kinect runtime

    If you think it's because of debug mode then make a release and remove any debug information in project options.

  • note: you must use a Kinect For Windows sensor (not XBox Kinect) when running with just he runtime installed. XBox sensors are only supported for development purposes.
