In order to install Kinect drivers in a Windows environment and run samples in Processing you need the following drivers and softwares.
Install Microsoft Kinect SDK
Install SimpleOpenni library
This library is a wrapper for OpenNI and NITE API and allows you to take advantage of the Natural Interactions (NI) functions. With SimpleOpenni the installation is much simpler than before, you can easily run the samples sketches and detect users in the scene, get access to the Kinect pointcloud, draw user’s skeleton, get joint informations such as hands relative positions, arm orientation.
- Download the library

In order to run the samples, open Processing, go to Files->Examples->Contributed Libraries->SimpleOpenNI->OpenNI.
