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.

Why does the emulator lag after I try moving around?

After about a minute of trying to move around a hologram in the emulator it starts to lag horribly while trying to use an Xbox controller. It happens both when I create a project from Visual Studio and when I create a project from Unity. I have a GTX 980, which should be able to handle virtualization.

    rglapa,
    What CPU do you have?
    One of the things to check is that you enabled virtualization in the bios.There is a great tutorial to check out here in case you have not done this before: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/Virtualization/sect-Virtualization-Troubleshooting-Enabling_Intel_VT_and_AMD_V_virtualization_hardware_extensions_in_BIOS.html

    One other item you will want to verify is that you have Hyper-V enabled in windows you can do this by the pressing the windows start button and searching "features" and then selecting "Turn Windows Features on or off". Then go to Hyper-V and make sure it is checked, then restart your computer.

    Hope these items help fix your issues,
    Ryan

  • My CPU is an Intel Core i5 3470 at 3.20 GHz

  • I'm also getting an error that says:
    Symbols for ntdll.dll could not be downloaded from the Microsoft Symbol Servers. Exception settings and call stacks may not work correctly. Make sure you have a network connection and try again.

    I have a stable network connection.
