Kinect Installation for ‘Making Things See’ on Windows 8

Started tinkering with Kinect using this book: http://makingthingssee.com/

Spent half a day trying to install the OpenNI library on Windows 8. Turns out that driver signature enforcement needs to be disabled before the SensorKinect drivers from PrimeSense will be installed.

Follow the instructions on this page:

Then, follow the instructions in the book.

  1. Hi there! We also spent half a day trying to make this work on windows 8. Had to borrow a laptop with Windows 7. Thankfully I stumbled upon your blog. You seriously just saved our day! Thank you so much :D

  2. Any more ideas as this procedure doesn’t work on a Windows 8.1 machine?

    This worked great for me, thank you!

    I had to uninstall my previously installed kinect/primesense/openni drivers. I also had to disable driver signature enforcement 3 times and install scenect plus the included drivers at least 5 times before it worked… but it did!

    Thanks again!
