      • To install the SDK:
        1. Make sure the Kinect sensor is not plugged into any of the USB ports on the computer.
        2. If a previous version of the Microsoft Kinect for Windows SDK is installed, you must uninstall it before proceeding.
        3. Remove any other drivers for the Kinect sensor.
        4. Uninstall any Microsoft Server Speech Platform Runtime and SDK components including both the x86 and x64 bit versions, plus the Microsoft Server Speech Recognition Language - Kinect Language Pack.
        5. Close Visual Studio. You must close Visual Studio before installing the SDK and then restart it after installation to pick up environment variables that the SDK requires.
        6. From the download location, double-click on KinectSDK-v1.0-Setup.exe. This single installer works for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows.
        7. Once the SDK has completed installing successfully, ensure the Kinect sensor is plugged into an external power source and then plug the Kinect sensor into the PC's USB port. The drivers will load automatically.
        8. The Kinect sensor should now be working correctly. Launch the Kinect Explorer sample from Start, All Programs, Microsoft Kinect SDK v1.0, Kinect SDK Sample Browser and verify that the Kinect sensor is streaming skeletal, color image, depth image, and audio data.
