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.
Deploying using the Device Portal
I'm trying to deploy an app using the device portal because Visual Studio is giving me problems. But I'm not clear what is the file or files that I have to upload, or how to build them. I know that in the device portal I should go to the "App" section under "System", in the part that says "Install app", select the file and deploy it, correct me if I'm wrong, but I have tried uploading different files this way, folders, zipped folders from my Unity Project and I always get the same error. The error says, "Failure reason: Missing .appx file name query parameter". I'm building using the Universal windows platform settings from the tutorials. Can anybody help me?
