For installing IDS NXT Vision App Creator, the following system requirements must be met:
If you want to build vision apps with the IDS NXT Vision App Creator also the installation of the Oracle Virtual Box is required. Download the software from: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
Start the IDS NXT Vision App Creator via "Start > IDS > IDS NXT Vision App Creator".
During installation, the directory "C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\NXT" is automatically set as default directory. If you want to store projects in a different directory, set up an additional directory in the IDS NXT Vision App Creator under "Tools > Options > IDS NXT". Then, restart the IDS NXT Vision App Creator and the virtual machine to apply the changed settings. How to setup an additional project directory is described step by step in the manual for the IDS NXT Vision App Creator.
If you want to deploy a vision app from IDS NXT Vision App Creator to an IDS NXT camera, you must configure the camera unter "Tools > Options > Devices". How to setup a camera is described step by step in the manual for the IDS NXT Vision App Creator.
Use the project wizard to start a new project for a vision app or a plugin. The project wizard automatically creates the correct project settings and a initial project structure.
