Hello Chakky,

you're not the only one running into trouble at the moment. I'm already looking into this issue. I will report back as soon as I have some news.

Hello again,

thanks again for reporting the Bug. It was apparently caused by an earlier SDK version that was used when InstantReality 2.3 was released. I've integrated the new SDK and tested the LeapMotion node on 64bit Windows, it should work again.

You can get a working version from the Dailybuilds:

Use the version from 12th of November or after.


PS: The Airspace or SDK downloads both do not provide automatic PATH configuration. Please make sure your PATH environment variable contains the correct path to the Leap.dll, or simply copy it to your installation folder in C:\Program Files\Instant Reality\bin. I used the SDK version by the way ;-)
