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.

The emulator is unable to verify that the virtual machine is running at VS2015

I have Unity for Hololen and VS2015 running at Windows 10 virtual machine. I have problems with running emulator on VS2015. Any tips how to make work?

The emulator is unable to verify that the virtual machine is running:
something happened while starting a virtual machine. Hololens Emuator failed to start.
The virtual machine management service failed to start the virtual machine Hololens Emuator.

    Do you mean you are running unity and Visual studio in a Win 10 virtual machine? Since the emulator itself is essentially a VM running in HyperV, you cannot run the emulator on a VM.
    If that's not the case, make sure that the HyperV service is up and running on your machine.

    You need to be running Windows 10 Professional as described in https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/holographic/install_the_tools

    Having the same issue! Screenshot below for the error which I get on the emulator screen.

    Hyper-V has been enabled at the Windows level and the corresponding settings at the BIOS level as well...
    shall I expect to see something in Hyper-V manager.

    Any pointers on this will be highly appreciated, as it has become a show-stopper for us to proceed ahead with any kind of development on this.
