Step 1 : Set up your Kinect sensor
- Make sure your computer is running Windows 8 or 10.
- Make sure you’ve installed the latest drivers from Windows Update.
- Center the sensor horizontally in front of your monitor or screen.
- Place the sensor on a flat, stable surface, away from any edges.
- Do not place the sensor on a stereo speaker or vibrating surface.
- Make sure the front of the sensor is not obstructed by power cords, computer cables, or other solid objects.
- Make sure the Kinect sensor is in a well-ventilated space and its vents are not covered.
- Keep the sensor out of direct sunlight.
- Use the Kinect within its specified operating temperature range of 41 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit (5 to 35 degrees Celsius). If the sensor is exposed to an environment outside of its prescribed temperature range, turn it off and allow the temperature to stabilize within the specified range before you use the sensor again.
- Keep the lens clean.
Step 2: Plug in your Kinect sensor
- Connect the power supply for your Kinect to an external power source.
- Connect the Kinect to a USB port 3.0 on your PC and wait for Windows to recognize it.
- All the drivers, including audio, will load seamlessly.
When you install the Swinguru software, the installation package includes the Kinect drivers. When the Kinect drivers are installed on a Windows-based PC, a Kinect that is plugged into the PC USB 3.0 port appears as a multicomponent USB device.
