We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Why is Launch Sharing Service not working?
Trying to add Sharing to one of my applications by leveraging the latest version (June 6 download) of the Unity HoloToolkit.
I am following along some of the steps in Academy 240 as an example.
But for some reason something that seems so simple does not seem to be working.
When I select "Launch Sharing Service" from the HoloToolkit menu in unity, the sharing service window does not appear.
If I then load the Finale code from Academy 240 in a side-by-side instance of Unity and try the same thing, it launches just fine. (The firewall message comes up and I okay it).
Peeking at the StagingServer code I notice there are some differences between the version used in 240 and what is now in the HTK. Is there something new or special that I need to do with the current generation of the HTK to get the Launch Sharing Service menu option to work?
Is the Sharing code maybe broken in the current version of the HTK?
(NOTE to forum admins: "HoloToolkit" would make a good forum tag, could you please add it?)
