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.

[OSX Parallels] Emulator crashes with memory management blue screen

edited December 2016 in Questions And Answers

Happens both while launching it from VS as well as Hyper-V Manager. Searching online hasn't yielded any help so far. I've already taken care to:

  • enable virtualization support in Parallels
  • enable Hyper-V in the Windows VM
  • pump as much RAM (4GB) into the emulator as I safely can

Any ideas, folks?

Here's my setup:

Host system:


Parallels virtual machine running Windows 10:

Hololens Emulator on VM:

  • BSODs are also known as Blue Screen of Deaths which is very common among in Windows users. It actually a major error caused a system crash and Windows cannot recover from it. Tip: You can use antivirus to Scan your system because the problem might be the damaged system files and these files are damaged because of a virus. Method 1: Check RAM: You need to check your RAM and unplug the ram, clean it and then plug in again. Because sometimes dust on RAM also caused this error.

    Method 2: Clear CMOS: Clearing the CMOS battery is a solution that has worked for a lot of users.

    Method 3: Run SFC: You need to Run SFC and to acknowledge the complete procedure to this method, must follow https://appuals.com/memory_management-bsod-blue-screen/ because it will help to get rid of this error.
