WMR & Windows Update 20H2 KB5001330 Fix

Looks like WMR seems to stop this Windows 10 update from being installed. It contains a bunch of security updates, so worth checking if yours installed ok.

To get around the WMR issue (again, this happened before):

A copy here in-case it gets edited:

In short you don’t necessarily need to uninstall WMR entirely:

  • Disconnect HMD (you can unplug the power on the breakout box of the HP Reverb G2)
  • Open administrative command prompt (right-click and run as administrator or type “cmd.exe” in your start menu and press ctrl+shift+enter)
  • Run “dism /online /remove-capability /capabilityname:Analog.Holographic.Desktop~~~~0.0.1.0”
  • Re-Run windows update, reboot and re-connect your HMD

This procedure does not require you to set up WMR from scratch after the procedure and saves you some time.

Is 21H1 out? I haven’t seen it available yet.

My bad in the title, the update is ‘Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 20H2’, I’ll update. That’s the update that won’t go on for some with WMR.

Not sure this is the right spot but…

Spent the evening in “DCS RAGE!”. I don’t want to talk about it…:frowning:

However, one of the issues was my VR headset tracking. Been getting worser and worser (yes, that’s a valid word in this case :slight_smile: ) and the last two days was – grrrr!

So, what the hay. Uninstalled WMR then RE-installed via Steam (WMR for Steam VR - I have no idea what the diff is between WMR and WMR For Steam VR as they look/act the exact same - other than just to make things more confusing for someone’s entertainment). But I digress…

Tracks like a shiny new headset now (fingers crossed). Even looked a teensy, weensy bit clearer and maybe even smoother? (Same settings in SteamVR) Maybe?

So, if WMR is giving you fits, or you suspect it may be one [of the many] weak links in the chain, give it a go I say. Took only about 10 minutes total.

I did have setup issues with the controllers (O+); it found them, then it didn’t. And would not. But I don’t use them. Somehow it all worked on the second go of running DCS.

G’Nite.

I’ve had a weird issue my last half a dozen DCS MP flights in that when I die (oh…that happens VERY rarely…yeah…) and respawn back on the carrier, sometimes (not all the time) I get a really laggy performance. I don’t know if it is DCS reloading textures or digging my grave or whatever…but anyway…ALT-TABBING out and back in solves it. Weird. And I have had great luck with moving my taskbar to the right side of the screen…I haven’t had any reoccurrence of the Out of Focus problems I was having last month.

I’ve heard about that one. No MP issues for me but, well, TODAY IS THE DAY! Maybe. I get a real internet connection. I’m waiting patiently?

Are you out there digging the trench for them? Man…I’d love to get Google fiber or similar out here where I live. I should feel lucky that we even have Spectrum since we are pretty far out in the woods.

I should have. Wife wasn’t happy with the job they did. I get a modem today. In fact, I need to install my 1G NIC now before they get here. Later…

Scroll down, click the link that says Known Issue Rollback Group Policy. It gave me my DCS frames back. It’s a small .msi file, an installer of sorts. It unf$&%s KB5001330. They say that should happen automagically, but it don’t hurt to make sure it did.

Direct link to the rollback MSI here (I think, I didn’t need it as yet):
