Okay I dropped this for a bit since I was getting a whole new system to put it on anyway.
And on a fresh install, had the exact same problem.
Gemini installed. Same as above. Service constantly stopping.
Downloaded driver from old version. Installed. Leap Motion moves from Camera to USB device as it should.
No change, service still stopping.
Still constantly stopping. can't manually stop from services because it's crashing so often that the system just gets pipe errors:
End task the process tree. Okay. Done.
Using the firmware reset now that I know nothing is running.
Get here. Hit Enter...
10+ minutes later still on that screen.
@dankirby: Please advise?
This is a completely new system with a clean windows 10 install exhibiting the exact same issues. Is this a hardware problem at this point?
