2) Install SensorKinect-Win-OpenSource32-5.0.1
3) Connect the kinect to your computer
In the device manager, you should see :Image

The FAAST window is now black, take a few steps back and you will appear on screen

Hey alexym thanks for the post. We’re trying to create Kinect hacks for dated operating systems too but this one’s a sure breakthrough.
this is the first tutorial that gets me beyond the drivers step
but when i try to start FAAST i get that the openni.dll is missing… how can i solve that ?
I would suggest installing the official Kinect SDK in order to make the Kinect work despite what processors you have. The Kinect SDK is a user friendly “all-in-one” pack from Microsoft that let’s users/hackers like us activate the Kinect on our PCs.
This guide is a bit out of date now. But glad I can help if it works out for you!
