Hi,

I have just started my UX Research and Design journey with Mixed Reality and wanted to try out Hololens Emulator. However, each time I launch it, it says "No Internet Connection". I have already checked no internet in hololens emulator — Mixed Reality Developer Forum

The accepted answer mentioned there leads to broken page. I tried creating a new switch in Hyper-V Manager and enabling External Networks, but some how Hololens Emulator does not provide the feature to change the default switch.

 

Any idea how to get this working?

Oh man, virtual machines and networking are always a pain to troubleshoot :( Mine has always worked out-of-the box, and I'm pretty thankful for that!

The broken page is still up on the wayback machine:

Looks like a nice article? It is from 2016 though, a lot has changed since then. There's also a few other help links over in the 'More Resources' box on the right side of the 'Help and Feedback' section -> You might have a little better luck with some of those teams! :)

Thanks @koujaku 

I am going through the link. I am a UX Professional and all the guides are around development. The only reason why I needed emulator is to install the apps and get a feel of the widgets and elements of Hololens environment. There is a design tool for Hololens too, but for that we need hololens.

 

For developers there are lots of tools and resources, while for designers apart from guidelines I didn't find any tool or design application.
