Starting with Windows 10 Creators Update, there is a new feature - the Windows Holographic platform, which has a special icon in Settings. There is also a built-in app, Windows Mixed Reality Portal. If it can't find the required hardware, it doesn't start. Here is a tweak which will allow you to disable the Mixed Reality Portal hardware checks and run the app.
Windows Holographic is the platform that adds mixed reality experiences available on Microsoft HoloLens. It offers a holographic shell and an interaction model, perception APIs, and Xbox Live services.
When you open the Mixed Reality Portal app, it runs a number of hardware requirement checks. If your hardware doesn't meet its requirements, this is all you see:
Here is how to bypass this limitation.
To disable the Mixed Reality Portal Hardware Checks in Windows 10, do the following.
- Open the Registry Editor app.
- Go to the following Registry key.
See how to go to a Registry key with one click.
- On the right, modify or create a new 32-Bit DWORD value "AllowFailedSystemChecks". Set it to 1.Note: Even if you are running 64-bit Windows you must still create a 32-bit DWORD value.
Now, re-open the app. It should allow you to click the "Next" button on the hardware check page.
That's it. Credits go to Rafael Rivera@thurrott.com.
