Installation of HoloLens Emulator

Installation of the emulator fails about 47% of the way through the installation green ribbon. The log says the following:

Error 0x80070643: Failed to install MSI package.

Can anyone tell me what went wrong here? What is the MSI package? Is there a way to check to see if it is missing from where the installer is looking for it? How can I move ahead?

  • How do you even have access to the emulator/tools? It will be released March 30th :sweat:

  • A few selected organizations have it. For example, Lowe's home improvement centers was announced today by Microsoft as a partner. There are others.

  • Error 0x80070643 corrupted. Dot NET framework. Run the troubleshooter admin command sfc/scannow needs net .0 3.5 and 4.6 Advanced on build 14291 Windows Insider edition and send feedback

  • Hi Jimbo,

    I followed your link to install_the_tools and it says "The download is coming soon." I got my beta version installed by figuring out the .cmd file was corrupted. However, I would like to get the latest build. How can I do that?
