Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Mixed Reality Portal without network

When my computer is connected to a router (wired or wireless), everything runs fine. The router doesn't even need to be connected to the Internet.

However, when I disable the wired NIC and disconnect the wireless NIC, the portal will not open, giving error code S0002361-101.

All updates have been applied. I'm using an HP OmenX backpack computer which passes all WMR checks.

Is there a requirement that the computer be connected to a network in order for Mixed Reality to work? Is this a bug that will be fixed in a future update? It is very difficult for me to imagine this being any kind of "feature".

The fact that no communication is necessary, only a network connection, implies that no handshaking is being done or required. There just seems to be some code in there asking "Am I on a network?", and if the answer is "no", then there will be no Mixed Reality.

Anyone have any thoughts or comments on this?


  • Hey @Craniac

    My name is Joe and I work on the Mixed Reality team at Microsoft. Are you still experiencing this issue? If so, it may be a bug that we need to follow up on! Thanks for your feedback and look forward to hearing from you.
