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.

Does my PC need to meet dev requirements to actually develop an app for mixed reality?

Hey there,

It really sounds like a fun idea to develop for mixed reality, but I just have one question: Can I still develop if my PC doesn't quite meet the system requirements?

Here are my specs:
GTX 1060 3GB
Intel i5-7400

Can I still develop and just expect the experience to be slightly laggy, or do I have to upgrade my computer if I want to develop for mixed reality?

  • Okay thanks! So I will still be able to download/use the programs but just expect them to be a bit laggy.
