Hi, I’m new here and I came right from a youtube tutorial introducing NI mate used with the Kinect.
But unfortunately unlike the tutorial, I have constant problems with NI mate. Since I wasn’t able to find anyway to post a new topic or post to a topic with similar issue, I’ve decided to post it here.
The camera device I’ve tested included the Kinect v1 for windows and Kinect v2 for windows in different mixed cases (both kinect, only one kinect, etc.) with their respective sdk shown working (depth sensor/ skeleton sensor working) before installing NI mate.
Version 2.14 crashes on all windows 8+ machines I have (bluescreen loop on restart on some) with a range of Microsoft Basic Display Adapter driver to Intel/Nvidia driver. I even tested on a VM with the following crash [Crash location 7C20259A, Crash ID cc8b7ab9-1a9504fa9-830b-fb2d8a5eedb1, NI mate 2.14 (r87efef2)].
To reproduce the crash, get a fresh installed windows (no random windows patches) and simply install NI mate 2.14 with all the defaults, click yes/ok to all windows and open NI mate. Soon after the NI mate started to fade to the background the crash reporter will popup, where the task manager show no NI mate program, and the tray icon won’t stay either.
Version 2.12, on the other hand, opens with no crash on all windows 8+ machines I have, but it shows that it cannot detect inputs for Kinect v2 (it says something like cannot draw depth) and failed to detect sensor for Kinect v1 (It shows as OpenNI2).
I’m at a lost here after using a weekend trying to get NI mate working, is there a specific requirement to get NI mate working? Or did I missed something important that everyone else here did before installing?
