Setting up a Windows Mixed Reality Device

Before Setting Up

This guide will show you how to set up a Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headset for our software from the beginning to your first simulation. Please note that using a Windows Mixed Reality device with Interplay's software is for more advanced users and may require you to setup additional software to get up and running.
First of all, ensure that the computer you are using meets the minimum specifications required to run our software.
Minimum Specifications:
  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel® i5-6600 / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X equivalent or greater
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1060 3GB / AMD Radeon™ RX 480 equivalent or greater
Please also ensure that you have installed all major Windows 10 updates for your computer. Windows Mixed Reality and our software may exhibit problems if your Windows installation is not up to date.
As well as PC specifications, we also require a minimum physical space that is clear of any physical obstructions in order to enjoy our VR simulations:
  • Minimum Room Size: 6.5ftx5ft square room space
Consult the packaging your computer came in for a list of technical specifications, or use the "Device Manager" included in Windows 10 to determine your system specifications. To access Device Manager, right click on the Windows button in the bottom left hand corner of your screen, and click "Device Manager". Open the "Display adapters" and "Processors" sections and compare the available devices to the system specifications above.
Note: The Display adapters section inside of Device Manager may contain multiple graphics cards. Your list may contain one of the brands above (Geforce or AMD) as well as Intel, and you will need to compare your system specifications to the Geforce or AMD card.
If your computer does not meet the minimum specifications, it will be incapable of running our software in VR and will require you to purchase an upgraded Windows 10 PC.

Setting Up Your VR Headset

If your computer meets the minimum specifications, you can now set up your Windows Mixed Reality device. Please consult the manual included with your VR headset to complete the hardware and software installation for your specific model of WMR headset.

Software Setup

Download the Interplay desktop app to begin simulations, the link is available here: https://www.interplaylearning.com/interplay-download-desktop-app
Navigate the Course Catalog as you would in your web browser and find a simulation you would like to run. When you see the "Launch" button inside of the thumbnail with a VR visor icon, as seen below, it means that simulation is ready for play in VR! Click that icon, put the headset on your head, and get ready to learn!
 Note: Windows Mixed Reality is no longer available to users as Windows Mixed Reality has been announced as deprecated - We cannot guarantee a WMR device will work with Interplay Learning
