    Do you plan to release the samples on codeplex?

    Hi, I have installed the sample codes (ControlsBasics-WPF) which are included in toolkit 1.7. However when I open its .sln file and try run it, it show errors.

    One of the errors is:

    The type or namespace name 'Interaction' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft.Kinect.Toolkit' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:UserscllimDocumentsSample CodesMicrosoft.Kinect.Toolkit.ControlsHandPointer.cs 13 36 Microsoft.Kinect.Toolkit.Controls

    May you teach me on how to proper running the sample code?



  4. @wst_:  thanks!

    @Daniel:  yes we will.  we're working on getting them posted.  not sure when they will go up but will be ASAP.  you can use the "subscribe" feature on CodePlex to get notified when they post.

    @cllim:  sorry about that.  not sure what happened.  did you install the SDK first and then the Toolkit?  if not please uninstall and try again.  if so, please try reinstalling Toolkit and then build the sample and see if that does the trick.  if that doesn't work will you please email me more information (error code(s) and message(s) along with screenshots)?

  5. Hmm KinectFusion samples don't work here from the toolkit (one cannot be started WPF basic and the others don't stay at 0FPS)

    Having a problem with upgrading my code to 1.70 from 1.60 "Microsoft.Kinect namespace does not exist are you missing an assembly?"  

    I first removed 1.60 from the project and then added the reference to 1.70.

    I did install the SDK and then the tool kit.

    But I did not uninstall 1.60 first.

    To download the SDK, there are two links. Each points to a different version of SDK.

    From Home page if I click – it points to SDK 1.6

    From whats new if I click – it points to SDK 1.7

    Pls update appropriately.

  8. where is the new feature's sample?
