I agree that's what's documented. But Windows installs the SR300 driver and the F200 driver install wizard refuses while attempting the firmware update. (error code -4)
So I wondered if the docu is wrong and hoped there was a tool for reading the camera's properties directly.
Is there a way of installing the driver without a firmware update?
The option is shown but I can't move to the next screen in the F200 install wizard without first selecting firmware update.
You may be able to find out which RealSense camera is installed without having to install the drivers if you open the Windows Device Manager and look in the 'Sound, video and game controllers' category. If the camera shows up in that, it should have a different entry for each camera model. On my PC, the following info is shown depending on which camera is attached:
BlasterX Senz3D VF0810
I researched and discovered that Windows uses an ID that it can read from the device to determine the driver.
By deleting the driver and letting Windows discover and install the SR300 was confirmed.
I also performed a Recover on the Lenovo PC so that the driver was installed from the Lenovo image and this also installed the SR300 driver.
So the lenovo documentation is wrong in this case, and also the file available on the Lenovo support site. I guess that's why the firmware update failed (F200 didn't match the SR300 device).
The answer is: remove the driver and rely on Windows discovering and install the driver. Still, it's a shame Intel doesn't have a utility to read and display the information to avoid this hit n miss method.
