Build Path Error When Running Demos




I am currently trying to run the demos included in the SDK for Movidius NCS 2. The issue that I am running into (I have a Windows 10 Home PC) is that I keep getting the following error:


[USER_NAME being my actual name]


The system cannot find the path specified.


0 file(s) copied.


The system cannot find the path specified.


classification_sample.exe -i C:\Intel\computer_vision_sdk_2018.5.456\deployment_tools\demo\car.png -m "C:\Users\USER_NAME\Documents\Intel\OpenVINO\openvino_models\ir\FP32\classification\squeezenet\1.1\caffe\squeezenet1.1.xml" -d CPU


'classification_sample.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,


operable program or batch file.




I follow the path that is causing the error and notice that the folder 'Intel' doesn't even exist in my Documents folder. I meticulously followed the installation guide, so I am unsure as to where I went off?

Hi @Julian_Orteil ,


Thanks for reaching out. May I ask which version of OpenVINO Toolkit you have installed? After running the demos: _demo_security_barrier_camera.bat_ and _demo_squeezenet_download_convert_run.bat_ (to validate my OpenVINO Toolkit install), I followed the instructions of the Inference Engine Developer Guide for Windows here The compilation result of the examples for me put the binaries in C:/Users/engin/Documents/Intel/OpenVINO/inference_engine_samples_2017/intel64/Release (it may vary a little depending on the "Solution Configurations" selected on Microsoft Visual Studio and the Visual Studio version itself).

After the compilation completed, then I went ahead and executed the demo with the command as shown below. Please give the guide a try and let me know your results, I hope this helps resolve your issue.

Please give the guide a try and let me know your results, there might be an extra step to compile the samples for the MYRIAD (NCS2) plugin instead of the CPU but it should be straightforward. I hope this helps resolve your issue, let me know if you have any additional questions.
