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.
Problems with Bluetooth adapter
Hello, i recently bought a mixed reality headset and motion controllers and i also needed to buy an external bluetooth adapter to get the motion controllers to work.
This is the name of the bluetooth adapter i got: Bluetooth USB Adapter CSR 4.0 USB Dongle Bluetooth Receiver Transfer Wireless Adapter for Laptop PC Support Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP,Mouse and Keyboard,Headset
Here is a link to the page i got it off of:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0775YF36R/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I have tried pairing my controllers through the adapters own interface with each time saying the it fails to connect, yet they still show up in the adapters connected device. As well, I do not have a bluetooth toggle switch either even with the adapter plugged in and with updated drivers.
I have tried force updating drivers, uninstalling and the reinstalling the device as well with no luck. Any info to help fix the problem would help. If my adapter is not supported, I would appreciated suggestions on a better adapter that is supported. Thank you!
