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 View Diagnostic Tools in VS17

Diagnostic Tools in Visual Studio is a great tools for developers to learn the read-time performance of their program. Today I just make a clean installation of Unity 2017.1.0f3 and Visual Studio 2017 version 15.2 Release. Then I download the HoloToolkit-Unity and make a very simple unity project with only the camera and spatialmapping prefab in it.

I deploy the code to HoloLens as usually but encounters this message in the Diagnostic Tools

The diagnostic tools failed unexpectedly. The Diagnostics Hub output in the Output windows may contain additional information.

Then I look into the Diagnostics Hub which says

No such interface supported
Unable to start Standard Collector. Please try repairing your installation of Visual Studio.

I don't understand why this issue occurs. I have tried to re-install/repair the VS17 but the issue persists. I also make a clean installation in another computer but also encounter this issue. Searching from google doesn't give me too much positive results.

I really want the diagnostic tools because it greatly helps me to find a performance bug in my program (And that is why I move to VS17 and Unity2017)

Can any one help me point out what the issue is or does anyone also encounter this issue?
