The Intel® RealSense™ Camera F200 driver for Windows* is called the Intel® RealSense™ Depth Camera Manager (DCM). The DCM enables any Windows-based Intel® RealSense™ app or Intel® RealSense™ SDK for Windows sample to function. The SDK doesn't install the DCM. You must install the DCM separately.

Install the Intel® RealSense™ Depth Camera Manager (DCM)

Note If your operating system is Windows® 10, you do not need to manually install the DCM. The DCM automatically downloads, and installs through Windows Update* when the camera is plugged into a USB 3.0 port. The automatic installation updates the camera firmware, if needed.

If your operating system is Windows 8.1*, then you must manually install the DCM.

To manually install the DCM:

  1. Go to Download Center and find the DCM for your Intel® RealSense™ camera.
  2. Double-click the installation executable file.
  3. Select Yes and Next at every screen.

Did the DCM install correctly?

Whether you installed the DCM automatically or manually, you must check two Windows consoles to ensure that you installed the DCM correctly: Device Manager and Programs and Features.

To check if the DCM installed correctly:

  1. Go to Device Manager.
  2. Look under Imaging devices and Universal Serial Bus devices.
    • Intel RealSense 3D Camera (Front F200) Depth, (Front F200) RGB, and 3D Camera Virtual Driver must appear under Imaging devices.
    • DCM installation is unsuccessful if Virtual Driver isn't installed.
    • The Universal Serial Bus device must list Intel RealSense 3D Camera (Front F200).
