Kinect Evolution - "No Sensor Detected" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just downloaded the recently released Kinect Evolution app from the Windows Store. When I launch it, it tells me "No Sensor Detected". Any other Kinect 2 app (for instance, K2 Studio) works fine.

    Yes, I am running the official 1409 SDK release.

  • Check the app permissions/privacy settings of you system. You may have allowed the app camera/microphone, but your PC Settings/Privacy/WebCam and/or Microphone setting may be off globally.

    Windows store applications has policies on accessing the camera/microphone that desktop apps do not get exposed to.

  • There might be an issue with the Kinect Monitor service...Run>msconfig> under services Tab Select "Hide all Microsoft Services" , Enable the Kinect service and Restart.
