I am working on a robot that runs Windows 7 and I want to use Kinect to do some basic navigation. I must have Windows on on my on-board computer since the robot runs Windows based control programs. The server computer is running ROS on Ubuntu.

I was wondering if Msvc SDK on winros is the best way to send the Kinect data from the on-board computer to my server over a netwrok?

Best is difficult to answer because it's subjective. For some winros may be the way to go, but others may find writing custom socket programs more desirable. What are the parameters that you'd like to use to define "best"?

Thanks for the comment. I agree. It is kind of vague. I am looking for the easiest/fastest way so I don't have to write everything from scratch.

At this point I don't see any evidence of a complete solution (i.e. some code, and some instructions would be needed)...

You're right...I came to the same conclusion. I'm going to try to make an image publisher ROS node in VC++. Hopefully, I can find enough instructions to make it work.
