    Hi @Jay Dev,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform.

    Using Kinect V2 on a virtual machine is possible, but it depends on the virtual machine software you are using. Some virtual machine software may not support USB 3.0, which is required for the Kinect V2 to work properly.

    If your virtual machine software supports USB 3.0, you can use the Kinect V2 on a virtual machine. However, keep in mind that the performance may not be as good as running it on a physical machine due to the overhead of virtualization.

    I would recommend checking the documentation of your virtual machine software to see if it supports USB 3.0 and if there are any specific configurations required to use the Kinect V2.


    Hope this helps you.
