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.

Manually installing WMP update?

I'm on build 17134.112
Trying to setup for my class. I get the message "windows reality needs an update"

I am under group policies that prevent windows update from succeeding. I have admin rights for installing software and am excluded from the schools firewall.

Can I manually download an update to get the portal working?


  • Wow, almost a day on the board and 7 views?
    I'm beginning to understand why the price is dropping on the WMP headsets! lol

    Seriously...any way to do this? Any experts perusing the forum I'd welcome some advice, even if it is how to have my network administrator open up WMP update on the group policies.
