[Tip] Disable or Remove Mixed Reality Portal App in Windows 10

But Mixed Reality apps and features can only be used if your device has compatible hardware. In other words, if your Windows 10 device doesn't fulfill the minimum hardware requirements to run Mixed Reality Portal, you won't be able to use it.

When you launch Mixed Reality Portal app from Start Menu, it first runs hardware requirement checks. If your device passes the checks, the app allows you to enjoy the virtual reality and 3D environment. But if your device fails in checks, the app sticks at the hardware requirement checks screen.

The good news is that you can disable this hardware requirement check in Mixed Reality Portal app which will let you use the app even if your device doesn't contain compatible hardware.

You can turn off the hardware check with the help of a small registry tweak. If you also want to disable the hardware requirement check in Mixed Reality Portal, following steps will help you:

2. Now go to following key:


3. In right-side pane, create a new DWORD AllowFailedSystemChecks and set its value to 1


That's it. Now run Mixed Reality Portal app and it'll launch without any problems and will not stick at hardware requirements check screen.
