Could not run the sketch (Target VM failed to initialize) Errors (Windows without NVidia)

edited March 2018 in Kinect

Hello guys, I am using the Kinect v2 library for Processing, and I am getting the error could not run the sketch.

Here is the log file

Any help would be very appreciated.


  • Please note that I am using Intel HD graphics 4000

  • Any help pls?

  • You say you "could not run the sketch." What sketch? Is it a demo that comes with the library, or your own code? Does the Kinect normally work, or have you never gotten it working before?

    Many people don't have a Kinnect 2 to test anyway, but you still might get more ideas if you give more details.

  • The code I am using is a demo that comes with the library, all the demos give a similar error, some of them show an image others don't even show anything.

    The Kinect works normally.

    Thank you for your answer

  • Okay -- which demo file, specifically, gave you this error? I don't know enough about Kinect and JRE crashing to help here, but somebody might.

  • SkeletonColor and Skeleton3D gave this error for example

  • any help?

  • Not a Kinect user at present myself -- just trying to help you get information out so somebody could answer. Looking at old answers, perhaps @totovr76 might have an idea?

  • Sorry for the late repply, which library are you using? I think that the video card doesn't matter in this case
