INSTALLING VUFORIA:

Before installing Vuforia, you'll need to install Git. A reboot is most likely required after installing Git.

https://git-scm.com/downloads

Afterwards you can download the Vuforia install package from this link:

https://developer.vuforia.com/downloads/sdk

If you're working on a machine at school that doesn't have Git installed, you can use this alternate method:

  • Go to this link: https://dev.azure.com/vuforia-engine/unity-extension/_git/com.ptc.vuforia.engine/
  • Click the three dots to select ‘Download as Zip’
  • Make sure to copy the zip from the downloads folder to the data store drive (ie. E:\)
  • Unzip the .zip file, make sure that zip is extracted with the folder name “com.ptc.vuforia.engine”, if the folder is just named Vuforia it won’t work. On windows you right click and select 7-zip/extract as com.ptc.vuforia.engine, (or in Dutch uitpakken als com.ptc.vuforia.engine)
  • In Unity go to Window/Package Manager
  • In the package manager click the + button in the top left corner and select “add package from disk”
  • Navigate to the com.ptc.vuforia.engine folder and select the .json file in that folder.
