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.
HoloShellApp Crashing ( AppCrash_HoloShellApp.exe ) after running fine for 3 days
PRIMARY ISSUE: HEADSET BLACKS OUT FREQUENTLY WHEN IN MR
NOTE: This could have stated after I downloaded the Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update, but I'm not totally sure. But, when I plugged the HMD into the system when the system arrived all was well. A few days later I decided to install the Fall Creators update. That is the only thin I can think of as being the probable cause-- unless it was an automatic update that is the culprit.
In any event, please review the attached info. If I need to return the headset, please let me know.
I have the Samsung Odyssey Headset. It has run fine for 3 days. Then it started crashing very frequently both prior to and during use.
The controllers beams disappear or the controllers themselves don't show up.
The headset goes black and sometimes requires rebooting the machine.
Everything is brand new the computer and the headset.
I've installed apps from the store, Unity3D, Visual Studio and XSplit broadcaster. But they were all working fine together.
I've checked the Event Viewer logs and can see that there are very many APPCRASH Entries for the HoloShellApp.
If I try running the HoloShellApp from the command line, I get a new APPCRASH EventLog Entry every time-- not sure if I could run that way though, I was just experimentally trying to reproduce the issue.
I have updated NVIDIA Drivers, but did not help.
Anyway, what was initially very stable, is now very unstable.
