I rushed on this product without checking the fact it is only usable through Ubuntu 16. I was hoping to use the SDK and do some C/C++ programming with it.
@hlide Currently the Movidius NCS supports only Ubuntu 16.04, however we are currently working on vm support for the NCS and as for Windows support, stay tuned because it is something we will be looking into.
I already modify the py and compile on windows through DLL. And find it works well. The source can be found on my github. https://github.com/zhoujustin/ncsdk
I rushed on BUYING this product...
Is it possible to use Modivius through Window10 Ubuntu Bash ?
@fgt 64-bit versions of Windows 10 anniversary update (build 1607 or later) added the feature Bash just to support some typical Linux commands but can not be considered as an emulation of a Linux system. Therefore chance for Movidius NCS to run under this environment is close to zero.
I have just ordered the stick - The support for windows will that be a "new" version of the stick or will it be a new version of the SDK.....
@sojohan platform (OS) requirements as mentioned in the tech specs are mainly for the SDK, which includes the toolkit, API framework and the USB drivers. If and when we support other OS, it should work with existing hardware (ncs).
@sojohan No change required in NCS hardware to support Windows. It is an external USB peripheral and as long there are proper drivers it should work. You will be able to use your newly ordered stick without replacing it.
@Tome_at_intel and @AshwinVijayakumar Thanks for answering questions regarding Windows support. Is there any estimated time arrival for a Windows SDK?
@hlide Right now, there isn't a eta for a Windows SDK release.
Good to hear about vm support, that will be nice. See my other post asking about VirtualBox; I guess that answers my question.
I don't think there is a need for the complete SDK to run under windows. But the NCS inference driver (like you guys did for the R-PI ) would be a real asset. Please keep us up to date!
Also, for the ones who cannot wait, is there a release of the Ubuntu (or raspberry) inference driver source code? Is it open source?
Window's support makes little sense for a device which consumes 1.2 watts - Windows itself requires a machine which consumes far more power. I would think Movidius has better things to do than support Windows.
I would also be interested in Windows support for the Movidius stick. There's plenty of "low power" Windows devices where this definitely makes sense.
@adpead At this point you can try using a virtual environment under Windows to run NCS. Note that there are some complications with the configuration in this case. If you have a choice to run Linux on your device I will recommend to do so and avoid various potential issues. Anyway there are a lot of discussions about the matter in the forum for example
If you face an error just search the forum. Many issues are already handled and solved.
@Zhoujustin Good job! Your ncsdk fork work very well, but in your code one "include" was missing and there was no pthread dlls.
So based on your fork I have create my fork: https://github.com/LukaszGajowski/ncsdk
I have added missing "include", pthread dlls and I have updated README (more details for newbie users, because some person can have problems with runing this).
I have send you on GitHub pull request with this changes.
@LukaszG Thanks for your contribution. I already merge your requests.
