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.

Cannot get Hololens emulator to start: error -2147467259

edited March 2017 in Questions And Answers

Hey everyone,

I'm brand new to the hololens emulator. I was trying to get a basic example to work. I followed the installation and basic project instructions instructions:


After following those instructions, the emulator starts and says "OS is loading...". This persists for quite awhile until VS says there was a problem in deployment. The output shows: "Error DEP0001 : Unexpected Error: -2147467259". I can't find this error listed anywhere. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is?

I've also tried just creating an empty hololens project from inside VS and skipping Unity entirely but I get the same behavior.

Thanks for any help.


  • Hey friend, I got the same error. I quit my antivirus software and then it works.
