Looking at the front cover, I see Kinnect, where it clearly should be Kinect, single 'n'.

Last paragraph in section (Preparing a new project with C++)

In the Kinect1.5 sdk, the name of the lib is Kinect10.lib. Based on the machine configuration (x86 or x64) there is a sub directory in the lib folder i.e. for x86 machine, the Kinect10.lib is located in <Program Files>\Microsoft SDKs\Kinect\vX.XX\lib\x86\ directory whereas for a x64 machine, it is in <Program Files>\Microsoft SDKs\Kinect\vX.XX\lib\amd64\Kinect10.lib

I could figure out myself that one has to set the event handler to the kinectSensor.ColorFrameReady event. But I could only get the example to work after downloading the Kinect.Toolbox becasue there you can find that you also need to ENABLE the ColorStream. Conclusion: Would be nice to add a parapgraph mentioning to add following 2 lines of code in Initialize (before kinectSensor.Start() ): kinectSensor.ColorStream.Enable(ColorImageFormat.RgbResolution640x480Fps30); kinectSensor.ColorFrameReady += kinectSensor_ColorFrameReady; Thanks !

Figure 11-2

Figure 11-2 Should represent the way to add new project feature : Quote from the book : "After installing XNA, you can create a simple Windows Game application with it. Figure 11-2 shows the Add New Project feature you use to begin creating a new application." But the image is the same as Figure 10-2 (capture of HMI of the test project)
