Hello everyone.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

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.

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, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

How good Hololens Emulator will run with my PC's spec?

edited January 2017 in Questions And Answers

Windows 10
CPU : 4 Cores
Processor: Intel i3-3110m CPU @ 2.40 GHz
RAM: 4.00 GB
System type: 64 bit

  • @Holonick To use the emulator, make sure your PC meets these hardware requirements:
    • 64-bit Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, or Education (The Home edition does not support Hyper-V or the HoloLens emulator)
    • 64-bit CPU
    • CPU with 4 cores (or multiple CPU's with a total of 4 cores)
    • 8 GB of RAM or more
    • In the BIOS, the following features must be supported and enabled:
    ○ Hardware-assisted virtualization
    ○ Second Level Address Translation (SLAT)
    ○ Hardware-based Data Execution Prevention (DEP)
    • GPU (The emulator might work with an unsupported GPU, but will be significantly slower)
    ○ DirectX 11.0 or later
    ○ WDDM 1.2 driver or later
