I want to use a zSpace 200 to view simulation data, which is displayed via Paraview. Paraview has a VR-Plugin that supports VRPN-Server-Client structure. The only obstacle right now is, that I could not run your Serverinstall.exe on my Windows 10 maschine. https://support.zspace.com/hc/en-us/articles/204780795-VRPN-driver-release.
And additonally I have to know the VRPN name of the zSpace. Is it as the vrpn standart: tracker0?
Or is there an better way to couple the Paraview PlugIn with the zSpace device?

Thank you for your help and have a good day!

Hi Jamil,

Please forgive the delay.

VRPN is pretty old. Our driver for it likely hasn't been touched much since Windows 10 was announced back in 2015. Your best bet right now is to try installing it on Windows 8 or 7.

The device names are likely described in a readme upon successful installation.

There's some potential I can learn a bit more about it early next week in which case I'll report back here.
