I'm following these instructions http://www.kinecthacks.com/guides/install-kinect-on-your-pc-and-start-developing-your-programs-disclaimer/

but so far have had no luck. I'm getting an error when installing the Sensor KinectMod saying I need OpenNI 1.2.0.4 or greater(even though I have the latest OpenNI2 installed) and also in my device manager I don't see any PrimeSense devices listed after plugging in my Kinect.

I'm also confused by what the ' OpenNI Compliant HARDWARE Binaries' are and where I should download them.

Can anyone point me to an up to date tutorial for installing OpenNI with a Xbox Kinect device on Windows8?

The likely problem is your using a XBOX 360 Kinect instead one designed for Windows. Seems like you will have to contact OpenNI's authors to address the bug in their software. – Ramhound Dec 19 '12 at 16:26
    
I needed to install Kinect for Windows first – eco_bach Dec 19 '12 at 18:29

You're using Openni2, it's the latest version which directly supports Windows SDK (even for Xbox Kinect).

  • Uninstall everything like drivers, Openni2, Nite2
  • Install Kinect SDK 1.6
  • Reinstall only Openni2 and Nite
