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.

    In Windows Feedback Mixed Reality Engineering said

    It looks like you are hitting the Code 31 error because your Intel Xeon processor does not support AVX instructions, which is required by Windows Mixed Reality

    So @motus there is a lot more to the processor which is used in laptops from the likes of Dell.

    Interestingly the Dell laptop validated by Dell for Windows Mixed Reality was a high end top range laptop without an Xenon. Therefore avoiding these problems.

    Hi @motus,

    I am from the Microsoft team. I use a Xeon processor on my main Windows Mixed Reality device, and it works very well. Thus, I can confirm that at least one Xeon processor in the world works.

    However, as @Jimbohalo10 pointed out, the AVX instruction needs to be supported. Some Xeon processors have the support, while others do not.

    The simplest way to verify whether this processor can be used with Windows Mixed Reality is to use the free Windows Store app that checks the CPU. You can get the app here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/windows-mixed-reality-pc-check/9nzvl19n7cnc
