Kinect for Windows Runtime Dev-v2.2_1607 Docs? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Kinect for Windows Runtime Dev-v2.2_1607 has been pushed onto my system and there appear to be some new UWP bits, but there are no docs available for the new additions?

    When will the new APIs be documented?

  • Can you provide a link to this 2.2 version? Google shows no links to such a version.

    And official links to Runtime and SDK show 2.0 version.

    Did you ,by any chance, mean OpenNI 2.2?

  • I've been able to obtain the mentioned Dev-v2.2_1607 runtime on a fresh Win10 Anniversary Update installation, by enabling the beta drivers via registry first, and then install the Kinect v2 SDK 1409. The problem is that once installed, the sensor is recognized and connected, but neither desktop apps/samples or UWP app/samples work. They start but then no data is received from the sensor and in the UWP Camera Sample an exception when trying to enumerate the device occurs.

    I reverted back to the 1409 driver and desktop apps work as usual.

  • I see. I haven't done anything towards UWP so I wasn't aware of v2.2_1607.

  • There is a problems there are TWO DIFFERENT size files on download and 89MB, which would appear to be too SMALL and the correct size 275MB

    Kinect 2.0.1410.19000

    It does not help that the filename is called

    KinectSDK-v2.0_1409-Setup.exe but in fact a later version

    to install

    To install the Kinect for Windows SDK 2.0:
    1. Make sure the Kinect sensor is not plugged into any of the USB ports on the computer.
    2. From the download location, double-click on KinectSDK-v2.0_1409-Setup.exe
    3. Once the Kinect for Windows SDK has completed installing successfully. Restart your PC to remove the old drivers
    4. Ensure the Kinect sensor is connected to the power hub and the power hub is plugged into an outlet. Plug the USB cable from the power hub into a USB 3.0 port on your computer. Driver installation will begin automatically.
    5. Wait for driver installation to complete. You can verify that installation has completed by launching Device Manager and verifying that "KinectSensor Device" exists in the device list. Note:On first plugin, the firmware on the device will be updated. This may result in the device enumeration happening several times in the first minute. Always answer "NO Action"
    6. Installation is now complete.
    7. In the Search box, or Start bar Find and start the Camera app, Click the camera rotator until "KinectSensor 2.0". If you are facing the Kinect Camera Face Detection box will be seen.
    8. To enable "Windows Hello with Kinect Sensor 2.0", Settings -> Accounts-> Sign In -> Windows Hello -> Improve Recognition, Twice. Lock the screen and watch Kinect check your Face Recognition
    9. Run Audio troubleshooter and Enable the microphone in Kinect
    10.  Click Cortana Microphone say "To be or not to be"
    11. Enable Cortana to voice train your voice and Click enable "Hey Cortana
