I am starting with ROS and Rviz and I am having troubles to upload my launch file to Rviz. I know there is a similar question in the forum but it is not answered. I upload the package from github → /ros-industrial/kuka_experimental/tree/melodic-devel/kuka_lbr_iiwa_support
I am using ROS Noetic as it seems to be the version needed but I am not sure. Actually the package appear on a Melodic GitHub directory but then within the package it says Noetic. I am not sure about this.
The thing is that when I put this:
c:\catkin_ws> .\devel\setup.bat (sourcing the setup.bat) c:\catkin_ws>roslaunch kuka_lbr_iiwa_support load_lbr_iiwa_14_r820.launch
It runs OK:

And in another terminal I run source again and run de rviz:
c:\catkin_ws>.\devel\setup.bat c:\catkin_ws>rosrun rviz rviz
Rviz opens and when I add the robot state:
Nothing appears in the Rviz…
I dont know why this happens, may be it is not the ROS version the package need or may be it is because I am doing this on Windows, but the thing is that everything seems to be compatible until the last step.
Thank you very much for you time.
