No Kinect references in Visual studio? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone, I haven't posted here before, so apologies if i'm posting in the wrong section.

    I'm super excited for the kinect sdk, but so far i'm not enjoying it.

    I've spent the last 3 hours getting the dlls to show in Visual studio, but no matter what I try, they won't appear.

    Here's a screenshot of my PC showing that both Visual Studio, and the Kinect beta SDK is installed:

    As you can see from the screenshot above, my reference box definitely doesn't contain the dlls like in this image from the tutorials: http://files.channel9.msdn.com/wlwimages/9c00b398b405423b99d19efa016fae96/image%5B17%5D.png

    I've tried restating and re-installing multiple times, but nothing seems to be helping. 

    Anyone have any ideas on whats wrong? Or am I just tired and missing something ?

     

    Thanks in advance.

  • When this happens, most often it means that you had Visual Studio open during installation, so just re-starting VS would be enough to pick up the path from install. But you did say that you re-started and re-installed, so maybe that's not it. Rebooting has often fixed the same problem for others, when just re-starting VS didn't work.

    If you did reboot as well, could you try taking the same screenshot as http://i54.tinypic.com/34hgvtf.png, but make sure to click on the "component name" list header. From your current screenshot, I'm not sure that the components are sorted, so that could also be what's making it difficult to find them.

    Hope this helps!

  • Use the Browse and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Research KinectSDK to add Microsoft.Research.Kinect.dll (for x64)

    or c:\program files\Microsoft Research KinectSDK\ for x86 system.

    Hope this helps

  • if you are using the 1.0 SDK, there is no Microsoft.research.kinect.dll it has been renamed to Microsoft.Kinect.

  • Thanks. It is really a tiring search for a beginner not knowing so.

  • can i ask , how do i download Reference Microsoft.Research.Kinect.dll. ?

  • why are you looking for that dll?

  • Let me add to that, the dll in the 1.0 SDK has been renamed (see my post above) to  Microsoft.Kinect. You should be using the 1.0 SDK and referencing this dll.

  • The Kinect Reference requires .NET Framework 4. Create a new project, and make sure that you've got .NET Framework 4 selected from the Framework options drop-down menu in the new project window.

  • if you want the Beta 2 SDK, you can get it at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/kinectforwindows/develop/beta.aspx

    BUT, you cannot have both Beta and 1.0 SDK installed. You should check for updates to the "other peoples code".
