This page provides instructions for installing device driver and SDK for the Dragonfly camera.

Common instructions

Both device driver and SDK comes in a CD shipped with the Dragonfly camera. You can also get the installer from here: http://eris.liralab.it/iCub/downloads/drivers/windows/. E.g. for 32 bits machine get and execute flycapture2.0.1.5_x86.exe.


At some point in the compilation process cmake will expect to locate the SDK library and header files. The following procedure will be used:

  • Check if the environment variable DRAGONFLYAPI_DIR exists and use it.
  • Check in a default location, i.e. C:/Program Files/Point Grey Research/FlyCapture2

If you did not install the dragonfly software in the default directory you have to define the DRAGONFLYAPI_DIR to point to the root of the SDK directory tree (e.g. C:/Program Files/Point Grey Research/Fly Capture2).
