Kinect Setup

I’m trying to load Mirosoft Kinect 1.0 Beta2 SDK Setup but at the end of installation it gives an error
Microsoft Kinect 1.0 Beta2 SDK Setup Wizard ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified [What does that mean] To install this program at a later time run Setup Wizard again. Click the finish button to exit the Setup Wizard.

What do I need to modify to install Mirosoft Kinect Beta setup?

Well, you are going to need to be more specific. Is there an error message that goes along with that? Basically all that message is saying is: “I didn’t change anything on your system because something went wrong.”

Did you check your system requirements to make sure that you have all of the required components installed before installing the SDK?

Especially Visual C# Express 2010 or another Visual Studio 2010 product.

I had the same issue. No additional error information. Downloaded Visual Studio C++, Visual Studio .Net, Direct X SDK, and reinstalled Microsoft Frameworks 4.0. The 32 bit version would not run on a 64 bit Windows Home PC. Had to load the 64 bit version. Hopefully the other executables required will work with the 64 bit version of the Kinect SDK.

The event viewer for the failure of installing the 32 bit version contains gibberish. Did not find anything online for the event IDs 11708 and 16368.

Product: Microsoft Kinect 1.0 Beta2 SDK – Installation failed.

I’m assuming that we are supposed to download the correct version for our OS even though the instructions were explicit in specifying the 32 bit version. Hopefully the other applications will run under 64 bit. I have no 32 bit processors running win7…

I’m running it on 64-bit Win 7 Home Premium without trouble and I installed the 64-bit versions.

The Getting Started with the Control System document specifies the 32-bit version as it appears to be written with the Classmate in mind. The Getting Started with Kinect document tells you to select the appropriate version for your OS.
