Hi,

I am trying to install the freenect library to use a kinect with SimpleCV on Windows 7. The only instructions I could find were http://openkinect.org/wiki/... which seems like a very complicated procedure. I was wondering if there is a simpler method. I got about half way through the instructions on the website in the previous sentence (I downloaded Cmake but I now can't figure out how to install it from the folders downloaded). I have tried installing other things using similar instructions and I always end up several hours later with parts of things installed and nothing working, so I thought I'd find out if there was a simpler way first.

Thanks,

Cyrus
