Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

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.

Can't run mr. This PC doesn't meet the minimum requirements for Windows Mixed Reality, but it does!

I just bought a Samsung Odyssey and it won't let me play. I have a red X for processor. It is an older i7 overclocked to 3.65 Ghz but Windows thinks it is only at 2.67 Ghz.

I ran Userbenchmark from Userbenchmark.com and it says my OCed processor stomps all over the 7700U. Single core performance is about the same at 90 points for mine vs the 7700U's 96 points but every other metric the 7700U gets destroyed by my older i7. Quad Core Mixed Performance: 307 vs 255. Multi Core Mixed Performance: 442 vs 258... I can also push the overclock up to 3.8 Ghz.

Is there a way to force it to let me try at least? I just want to test it in a few of my different simulators to see the readability of gauges. If it is acceptable but my computer can't keep up I will be building a new PC. If I can't test I'll be returning this headset and waiting for Gen 2 to build a new PC.


  • I have discovered this is because my i7 doesn't have the AVX instruction set required for the controllers. I won't be using the controllers for my simulators, how can I play anyway?

    On my brother's computer, after initial setup, I never even turned on my controllers. I just start Windows MR, start steam VR, then start my simulators. Please allow me to use this, I don't want to return it for a RIft.

  • Make sure you plug the HDMI cable into the graphics card, not into the motherboard.:) Hope it helps.

    In Regedit, go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Holographic\FirstRun" and create a DWORD32 named "AllowFailedSystemChecks" and set it's value to 1.
