Launching any Kinect app crashes on Windows Server 2012 (sdk: v1409) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed SDK (v1409) on a Windows 2012 R2 (x64) Standard box. It's running an i7 with 16 GB of RAM. no Hyper-V is intalled.

    I have a DX11 compatible nVIDIA driver (GeForce GTX 650). (Feature levels: 11.0, 10.1,... from dxdiag.exe)

    I am using a Renesas USB 3.0 host controller which works fine on another machine running regular Windows 8.1.

    I have the .

    NET Framework 4.5 Multi-targeting Pack

    NET Framework 4.5 SDK

    NET Framework 4.5.1 Multi-targeting Pack


    When I connect the v2 Kinect it shows up in the Device Manager, but when I try to execute any of the .exe in the Kinect\v2.0_1409\bin the application crashes with:

  • Server is not a supported OS for Kinect for Windows. I don't know where the support for the media components falls in that version, but core server operating systems are missing the desktop features needed like Media Foundation. Also, because server is optimized for background tasks, you may have issues with timing. This will affect how the application may behave on that operating system.
