Alright so I have been at this for about 5 hours now and no luck.
First thing my specs
Windows 10 64 bit
32 gigs ram
Intel core I7 7820x
I have both usb 2 and 3 ports on the front of my case
kinect for windows model 1517
First thing I tried was to install the official SDK 1.8 and toolkit 1.8. in device manager I had kinect for windows with 3 devices under it security audio and camera I had output to the toolkit when I ran a test application from the SDK. However when I went to NI Mate there was no such output but the software detected openNI2 and tried to use it. When I pressed the start sensor button it would load for a bit then return me to sensor stopped start sensor again. So I uninstalled everything. Disabled driver signatures then reinstalled NI Mate with primesense 1 thing selected in the installer. I checked device manager and I find that it has two devices under primesense being kinect audio and kinect camera no motor was in the list like the FAQ said there should be. however the kinect has a flashing green LED and the power LED on the cable is on and it is plugged into my USB2 controller now when I enter NI Mate setup and scan for sensors nothing shows up at all.
I hope that print screen works but that is where I am now. any help would be greatly appreciated.
because print screen seems to work here goes
device manager currently
It also seems that I can no longer get output to the toolkit
