As some of you have found out - it is difficult to get ARToolKit to run on
a PC. Part of this was due to instability in the version of the Microsoft
Vision SDK we were using.
Microsoft has upgraded the Vision SDK to a new verison - verison 1.2
This is significantly more stable than the old verison.
To celebrate - we've put together a new webpage explaining how to use
ARToolKit on PCs and containing a version of the library compiled with
version 1.2 of the VisionSDK. This version of the ARToolKit library will
compile with version 1.2 of the Vision SDK, unlike the previous PC
Please check this out at
Let me know if you have any problems.. We put this together in a hurry so
there could be some teething problems.
We are also working on a MFC and DirectShow version of ARToolKit - once we
get these working it is expected our code will be a lot more stable and
run faster. Let me know if you'd like to help out with that :)
