Release Notes:
* At the moment, the default is to compile the code with SSE3 support (this is also true for the supplied binaries). 
  If you have a CPU without such support, please remove the sse compiler flags from the make files.
  (A good hint for this error is that you encounter an "illegal instructions" messages)

For the latest unstable build please check out:
Build Notes:
		1) Microsoft Visual Studio 2008/2010
		2) Python 2.x/3.x (must be at least 2.6 and above)
		3) PyWin32 
		4) NSIS 2.46
		5) patch (An important patch to fix problems with adding strings to the path. you can find it in the Platform\Win32\Build\Prerequisites\ directory)
		6) Doxygen & GraphViz (to create docs...)
		7) Microsoft WDK - Optional! Only needed to build the usb driver. The package already includes a precompiled and digitally signed 32/64 bit driver.
	Building the USB driver (Optional):
	Simply go into the directory "OpenNI\Platform\Win32\Driver\Build" and run the "BuildAll.bat" script.
	For your development convenience, you can also use the solution: "Platform\Win32\Driver\Build\psdrv3.sln" but official driver builds should only be made with the batch file above, that uses the proper DDK environment.
	Note: The driver build tool requires a system environment variable called "DDKPATH" that points to the WDK installation dir (for example: "c:\WinDDK\7100.0.0"). To add an environment variable please follow these steps: Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables -> New (at the "System Variables" tab).
	Building OpenNI:
		1) Go to the directory: "Platform\Win32\CreateRedist". Run the script: "RedistMaker.bat" This will compile and prepare the redist exe files that includes everything.
		2) Install the exe you've just made which is located in Platform\Win32\CreateRedist\Final\OPENNI-Win32-1.0.0.exe 
		   The installer will also create the necessary environment variables (OPEN_NI_xxx), add the DLLs to the system path and register the internal modules with NiReg.
		The visual studio solution is located in: Platform\Win32\Build\OpenNI.sln.
		When doing development it is recommended that you change the environment variables to point to your development directory instead of the default C:\Program Files\OpenNI.
		(This can save you lots back and forth file copying...)

	Important: Please note that even though the directory is called Win32, you can also use it to compile it for 64-bit targets (AMD64/x64).
		1) GCC 4.x
		2) Python 2.6/2.7/3.0/3.1
		3) libusb 1.0.8 (libusb-1.0-0-dev)
		4) freeglut3 (freeglut3-dev)
		5) Doxygen & GraphViz (to create docs...)

	Building OpenNI:
		1) Go into the directory: "Platform/Linux-x86/CreateRedist". Run the script: "RedistMaker". This will compile everything and create a redist package in the "Platform/Linux-x86/Redist" directory.
		2) Go into the directory: "Platform/Linux-x86/Redist". Run the script: "sudo ./" (needs to run as root)
		The install script copies key files to the following location:
			Libs into: /usr/lib
			Bins into: /usr/bin
			Includes into: /usr/include/ni
			Config files: /var/lib/ni
		To build the package manually, you can run make in the "Platform\Linux-x86\Build" directory.
		(You can also find a SlickEdit project there...)
	Important: Please note that even though the directory is called Linux-x86, you can also use it to compile it for 64-bit targets and pretty much any other linux based environment.
