Dennis Delimarsky, Friend of Channel 9, has updated his must use Visual Studio templates for building Kinect for Windows SDK applications...

KinectContrib Templates for Visual Studio 2012 Now Available

If you develop applications that use the Kinect SDK, you are probably familiar with my project – KinectContrib. It allows developers to easily create Kinect-based applications from the File->New Project dialog in Visual Studio instead of relying on developer samples. Today I added some modifications to the default installation package, that allows templates to be installed in the RTM build of Visual Studio 2012.


Currently you get support for three programming languages: C#, Visual Basic and F#. All three carry three starting project types: video, skeleton and depth.

I will be soon retiring the the ZIP option, so that developers will have a better time getting the templates to work without having to worry about all the plumbing that goes underneath.

You can download the latest installer here.

VISUAL STUDIO 2010 USERS: The installer for the previous release of Visual Studio is located here.
