Hey :),

i got some issues using a Kinect for Windows.

I find out that this Kinect is not supported by Openni yet. here and here and this command:

roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch

throws an error like this:

[/openni_node1] No devices connected.... waiting for devices to be connected

I tryed to use the unstable version of openni and ps-engine as mentioned at this question but this sill not works. So the real Question whitch arives. Is there some kind of workaround for this issue?

for advising purposes: The easy solution for this issue was just to take an older Version of Kinect.

Kinect4Windows can be made to work. The links below must help.

link for kinect 4 windows on ubuntu.........or mitchtech!msg/openni-dev/h0F6kYCNigs/BR6iqqFhSJ8J

If openni does not build then, install openjdk-7-jre and openjdk-7-jdk

after cd SensorKinect type git checkout unstable

openni_camera and openni_launch wont wont in the first go and say that this file "XnCppWrapper.h" is missing. Search for it and move all the contents of that folder to the /usr/include/

Never do rosdep for openni_Camera or openni_launch beacuase the unstable openni packages will be replaced by the stable ones..

Finally you can you roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch to get the new Kinect4Windows to work
