Does Coding4Fun Kinect Toolkit works on Kinect for Windows 1.5?

I have downloaded the exemple about kinectpowerpoint version 1.1 and try test some things and did not work.

First, the exemple need the reference Microsoft.Research.Kinect and i found only the reference Microsoft.Kinect

Can anyone help me ?

What project are you using?  if you're using that supports Kinect for Windows 1.0 release.  Kinect for Windows 1.5 is binary compatible with 1.0 so the coding4fun kinect toolkit should work.  If you're seeing "Microsoft.Research.Kinect" as a namespace, that is either the beta 1 or beta 2 of the Kinect for Windows SDK.

With the c4f toolkit, use the latest release which is 1.5.  This is compatible with Kinect for Windows v1.0 and should be with 1.5.

I'm using exactly the kinectpowerpoint project.

I have some erros to import the components below:

using Microsoft.Research.Kinect.Nui;
using Microsoft.Research.Kinect.Audio;

Now I will look for the similar components.

where Microsoft.Research in the Windows SDK 1.5 change to only Microsoft.Kinect

I will try some changes in the project and post results later.

Thanks for the help.

Few things here

  1. It sounds like you are asking for help on a different project, if you're having an issue with the kinect power point project, you should ask there (
  2. Whatever project you have, it is targeting either Kinect for Windows beta 1 or beta 2
    1. Upgrading a b2 project to v1 or v1.5 takes a bit of conversion work.  They changes are documented.
    2. if you go to, they did updated to Kinect for Windows v1 / v1.5 SDK.  This should solve your issue.
  3. If you need help with the Kinect for Windows SDK instead of help on the kinect power point project, check out the forums on MSDN. has the the link to the general discussion, NUI APIs, and Audio APIs for Kinect for Windows SDK.

If you do need help on the Coding4Fun Kinect Toolkit, I'm still not sure what the issue actually is you're having.

I am sorry crutkas.

Really I post in wrong place.

The error is relacionated to kinectpowerpoint not c4kinect.

I'm starting in develop for kinect just a few weeks, so i still learning e riding some foruns and articles.

by the way, the error was ocasionaled because i'm using the wrong version of kinectporwerpoint, that incompatible for the sdk 1.5

now is working perfectly.
