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.

HoloLens Emulator 10.0.11082.1039 won't start because of available memory

I am finishing up Chapter 1 on the Holograms 101 tutorial and can’t start the emulator. I get an error saying not enough memory is available in the system to start an emulator that uses 2048 MB of startup RAM.
I am running a Surface Pro 3 with Win10 Enterprise 64-bit, 8 GB of RAM.




  • The question is: what can I do to get the emulator to work?

  • In this case typically what I do is launch the emulator as the first application after I boot my PC. You can refer to this thread for a command-line to help out with this feat: https://forums.hololens.com/discussion/236/running-emulator-directly. Once the emulator is up and running, then you can launch your other development tools. Another option is to run the emulator on a different machine and connect to it via its IP address using "Remote machine" in the Visual Studio deploy step.
