Hi,

I followed instructions on https://docs.openvino.ai/latest/omz_demos.html#doxid-omz-demos.

I finished the setup/installation, downloaded the needed models with the omz_download tool and tried to start the interactive demo:

interactive_face_detection_demo ^ --loop ^ -m "C:\Intel\face-detection-adas-0001\FP16\face-detection-adas-0001.xml"

[ INFO ] OpenVINO

[ ERROR ] PdhAddCounterW() failed: unknown error

How can I get more information about that error / is this a problem with my setup?
(I was able to get everything running on another machine)

Hello Workah0lic,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

 

Your error appears to be related to Windows performance-counter-API and this error is not related to OpenVINO. For more information about PdhAddCounterW(), you can refer to PdhAddCounterW function (pdh.h)

 

On another note, try specifying an input to the demo as it requires an input to process. You can get the sample video from intel-iot-devkit/sample-videos.  Here is an example command:

interactive_face_detection_demo -m "C:\Intel\face-detection-adas-0001\FP16\face-detection-adas-0001.xml" -i <path_to_video>\<input_video>.mp4

 

Here is the result of my test:

You can refer to Interactive Face Detection C++ Demo for more info.

 

Sincerely,

Zulkifli
