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.
Two issues with getting MRD up & running
First issue is a false negative in the CPU detection. It says that my 6 core Intel i7 980 is not capable of running MR apps even though it exceeds the minimum spec for "mixed reality ready" in terms of actual CPU power and runs Oculus VR content just fine. It's not a common CPU, so probably isn't in the database.
Second issue is that if I choose to set up a "simulation" or use the registry to bypass the hardware check, I always get a "Something Went Wrong" error of 2181038087-11 -- no idea what that means.
