    Hi, Daniellee!
    Kinect is supported in the Ultimate version of Beyond. Do you have an Ultimate license?

    You need the Kinect that came with the X-box 360. Newer kinects do not work.

    To use Kinect the following requirements need to be met:
    - Kinect requires BEYOND Ultimate 32 bit to operate.
    - Kinect dev kit version 1.8. (Download below)
    - Kinect 360 USB kit for Windows which looks like this:


    Download link dev kit 1.8

    If you want to install the dev kit 1.8 on windows 10, run the program in compatible mode and check "windows 8.1"

    1. Right click on setup file.
    2. Click on Properties.
    3. Click on Compatibility tab.
    4. Put a check mark on Run this program in compatibility mode for.
    5. Select Windows 8.1.
    6. Put a check mark on Run this program as an administrator under Privilege Level.

    For BEYOND 4 goes that you can find the 32 Bit exe inside the /beyond/bin directory. Replace the exe in the main folder with the 32 bit one, and then you should be ready to go.

    Dev kit 1.8 is still the only one that will work.
