Installing the Novint Falcon under Windows
Support for the Falcon haptic device is provided by the Force Dimension drivers.
On Windows, please download the latest drivers from the Force Dimension support website: www.forcedimension.com/support/download
If you were previously using the Novint drivers, please carefully follow these instructions:
If the Falcon device is not detected, you will probably have to manually force the Force Dimension driver to be installed on the Falcon device. Please follow these instructions:
I followed the above instructions but I am unable to interface Novint Falcion with chai3D.
I am able to play sample games provided by novint and able to feel the feed back.
1. I followed the instructions
www.chai3d.org/download/doc/html/wrapper-overview.html (Novint Technologies)
2. After installing - initiated "Haptic Init"-> Clicked on Initialize button (It started to vibrate a bit after clicking on Initialize button)
3. Then i Opened bin folder(in chai3D) and tried to run "application.exe" files
I also tried to build all the files after connecting the Falcon device to computer . It didn't work too.
Do i need to include any libraries in the program/code ? or Do i need to initialize any other software's ?

Your drivers seems to have been installed correctly.
To calibrate the Falcon haptic device, please do not use HapticInit, but instead, simply run any CHAI3D example and push the handle towards the back of its workspace.
Please note that any CHAI3D application will not detect the device if another application such as HapticInit is already running.
