If you already have it installed, you do not need to follow the instructions in this section. If you do not have it installed, you need to install it following the procedure in this section. After you complete this process, you can acquire images using the Kinect for Windows with the Image Acquisition Toolbox, as described in the sections referred to in Important Information About the Kinect Adaptor.
