In the '2016 R3' SDK, the SDK was split into a range of different modules instead of everything being in a singe SDK package like it was in the previous '2016 R2' SDK. To get hand tracking functionality in R3, there are two stages:
1. Install the 'Essentials' core module.
2. Install the optional 'Full Hand Tracking and Gesture Recognition' module from the SDK download page.
May I ask please if you have installed the optional hand tracking module once the Essentials module was installed?
Based on analysis of other C# hand tracking scripts, it seems that the problem may be with defining the config variable as a var type of variable. A more common structure is to define it as a PXCMHandConfiguration type instead. For example:
PXCMHandConfiguration config = handAnalyzer.CreateActiveConfiguration();

Thanks for your interest in the Intel® RealSense Technology.
The PXCMHandConfiguration type is from SDK R2 as seen here:
If you are using R3 of the SDK, then you should use HandConfiguration as described here:
Refer to the hands viewer sample at C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\RSSDK\sample\hand\HandsViewer.cs, for more information.
