Got it working. The FAAST installation instructions were a little unclear; the SensorKinect Module installer didn't install the drivers into the system, it put them in the PrimeSense Program Files directory. When I plugged in the Kinect it complained that the drivers weren't installed and I had to manually direct it to "Program Files\PrimeSense\SensorKinect\Drivers". Three time, once each for the motor, audio, and camera components.

Also, I had to modify the Vizard script in the article, adding:

viz.MainView.setPosition( 0, 0, -3 )
viz.MainView.lookat( 0, 0, 3 ) get anything to show up.

This was on a 32-bit XP system, I couldn't get FAAST to launch on 64-bit Win7.

I was able to get it working on my 64-bit Win7 last weekend. I did have to do one thing different. On the FAAST site it says to download the latest unstable version of the OpenNI and NITE applications. I did that, and it looked like it was working, but it would never send any data. I backed off to the latest stable releases and everything started working.

I ran into the same problem as JimC on XP where I had to manually add the drivers, but everything worked automatically on Win7 for me.
