1. tried to run a few VIs when loading project LB is looking for Microsoft.Kinect.Research.dll, tried different locations, both .dll (one provided with VI and one from SDK source) getting error that file was not found.

2. when buiding VI adding .net contructor node, Microsoft.Kinect is not on the list, when browsing getting error that cannot load, assembly build with newer than currently loaded runtime.

3. tried call library function VI, will load but not function available... getting funtions only MSRKINECTNUI.dll. Was able to initialiaze kinect, uninitialize, when trying to get colorpixelcoordinates LB usually crashed.

4. Was able to connect Kinect as USB camera (camera and depth view working no problem in skype) however crashes when trying to use it in LB (vision express VIs)

5. .config file found on NI websibe for 4.0 .NET will not open because its not compatible with 64bit system.

6. working fine with c#,


Any ideas ??

Are you using SDK driver or openNI driver ??

OK, got it working.

Had to create my own .config file for 64bit.
