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.

The emulator is unable to create a differencing disk when launching it directly

I launched the hololens emulator directly using the command prompt.
https://forums.hololens.com/discussion/236/running-emulator-directly#latest
I get the following error.
the emulator is unable to create a differencing disk. The system cannot find the path specified.

Also I can't create a Holographic application in Visual Studio, I get
Emulator Deploy Error DEP6100 Cannot access a disposed object. (another thread:https://forums.hololens.com/discussion/comment/5226#Comment_5226)

Please someone help me.

    PS. the folders containing the .vhd files are not compressed or encrypted.

  • Try mounting the Virtual disk to see if there is a problem using PowerShell Running as Administrator


    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Emulation\HoloLens\10.0.14342.1018"

    PS C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Emulation\HoloLens\10.0.14342.1018> dir *.vhd

    Directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Emulation\HoloLens\10.0.14342.1018
    

    Mode LastWriteTime Length Name
    ---- ------------- ------ ----
    -a---- 19/06/2016 11:25 1477242880 flash.vhd


    Now try mounting this virtual disk


    PS C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Emulation\HoloLens\10.0.14342.1018> Mount-VHD flash.vhd

    PS C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Emulation\HoloLens\10.0.14342.1018>
    Check the new drives for corruption

    I don't know what else there is to start the Emulator, but to go into Control panel and uninstall

    The reinstall the HoloLens Emulator

  • Did you launch from an elevated command prompt?

    Yes

    Try mounting the Virtual disk to see if there is a problem using PowerShell Running as Administrator

    Right Click "Run ISE as Administrator"
    Click "Yes" to the Run as Administrator modal prompt

    or Windows Command prompt Right Click "Run ISE as Administrator"

    Not sure if this is a requirement, but are you a member of the "Hyper-V Administrators" group on your PC?

  • Might be a little bit late on this, but got this error whenever tried to launch the emulator from Visual Studio - emulator launched, but the user and keyboard input were disabled and got the error message:

    "Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State Error DEP6100: The following unexpected error occurred during bootstrapping stage 'Connecting to the device '4CE3B45E-0530-04A7-0B7F-F404E7D5D220'.': ObjectDisposedException - Cannot access a disposed object. Object name: 'XdeServiceClient10_0'. [0x80131622]"

    Was finally able to correct it when uninstalled the emulator and the Windows Software Development Kit (for W10), and then reinstalled both but checked the flag 'Send anonymous usage data to Microsoft for the Windows 10 Kits'. Before doing this always got the error and was unable to use the emulator.

    I though we were supposed to be able to chose to send or not...
