Hello everyone.

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.

Can I make a Mixed Reality app using only C++ (not C++/CX)?

I'm trying to develop a Mixed Reality application for a Windows immersive headset and would prefer to compile with /mt (and not /md). I've tried translating the Windows Holographic templates to something that only uses the C++ interfaces (ex. IHolographicSpace instead of HolographicSpace) but I'm stuck on a few key points, including initializing the holographic space since calling IHolographicSpaceStatics::CreateForCoreWindow(core_window, &holographic_space) does not seem to work, saying that it is a nonstatic member function. I'm not sure how to create an IHolographicSpaceStatics object though since it's a purely virtual class.

Anyways, has anyone else had any success with using the C++ interfaces? Is it even possible to go this route or do I have to switch to using C++/CX and compiling with /md?
