The old github docs for ofxKinect says that “Precompiled libfreenect drivers and libusb-win32 libs are included for Windows,” do I need to install them manually? I did so for libusb64, and the program now compiles, but I still get no connection or data from my kinect. Everything works totally fine on a mac.
Solved it myself. The relevant instructions can be found in examples\addons\kinectExample\src\ofApp.h
One might need to uninstall the kinect drivers (via the device manager) first.
