Kinect not working over Remote Desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I enter my Windows 10 PC through remote desktop, I can launch a custom application using the Kinect SDK v2, which after opening the device reports kinect.IsOpen = true and kinect.IsAvailable = false. No data is received and the callbacks for color and depth frames are never invoked.

    When launched locally, the application works as expected (data is received and callbacks are invoked).

    This issue has appeared in other threads, where the suggested solution was to run the remote desktop client with local audio settings. However, in my case this does not solve the problem.

    The application was developed on Visual Studio 2017, as a WPF application based on .NET 4.6.1 with the latest Kinect SDK version. Neither my application nor any of the SDK samples work.

    However, Microsoft's "3D Scan" app (from windows store) does work even through remote desktop. Is it possible my application could work if ported to a windows store app?
