The Intel® RealSense™ SDK has been discontinued. No ongoing support or updates will be available.
Today at Intel RealSense Hands on labs, I installed Intel RealSense SDK R2 (downloaded from the link https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-realsense-sdk) on my Windows* 10 Pro Technical preview. Then I received the much awaited F200 – Front-facing camera. Plugged the camera to one of my USB 3.0 ports and ran a sample through Intel RealSense sample browser installed on my laptop along with SDK installation. As i waited, OK on the bottom of the screen turned to "Init Failed".Tried the other samples and nothing showed the much awaited realsense outputs. After few if's and but's, i started looking into my system specifications,
and compared the same to technical specifications mentioned on the intel website
4th generation (or later) Intel® Core™ processor
Microsoft Windows* 8.1 OS 64-bit Desktop Mode
|Supported Intel® RealSense 3D Cameras||
F200 – Front-facing
|IDE used for Samples and Tutorials||
Microsoft Visual Studio* 2010-2013 with service pack 1 or newer, Unity* PRO 4. 1. 0 or later for Unity game development
Microsoft Internet Explorer* 10.0.13
Everything looks good except two things,
Also i have no pending updates on my operating system.So the only other place i have to verify is Device Manager
With RealSense SDK R2, You don't get DCM (Device Camera Manager) as part of the main installer, its a different package altogether.The last section in the SDK details shows this.

Once you download DCM package and install the same, Check Device Manager and connect the camera.Everything should work as expected now.
