Intel® RealSense™ SDK R2 installation
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,
- My system is running on Windows 10
- Unity version is 5.0.0f
Also i have no pending updates on my operating system.So the only other place i have to verify is Device Manager
Why was this missed out ? and what is different with SDK R2
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.
