  • Try making sure it's plugged into the wall outlet and usb both and make sure your special power/data cable is plugged all the way in to the orange part on the inside coming from kinect. I find when i get kinect device in device manager most times i dont have it plugged into the wall outlet or the drivers are not installed correctly. Trying do a full unistall/reinstall of directx sdk then the kinect sdk. This will install fresh drivers and make sure it works. Only do this after you make sure everything is plugged in correctly.

  • have you ever installed any other Kinect open source drivers on this machine?

  • Also, if you run the sample in C++ and set a breakpoint in call to NuiInitialize in CSkeletalviewerApp::Nui_Init method in NuiImpl.cpp, what error code is returned to hr variable?

  • Did you try the above steps try reinstall the kinect samples and you can compile the code for skeleton viewer in the newest kinect sdk to whatever your computer is 32bit or 64-bit. but the wpfviewers even i had trouble compiling code for so if anyone got them to work please post here because i myself am too.
