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.

Creating an windows immersive app which can communicate to windows desktop app & vice versa

Hi ,

I want to create an immersive app (VR) where in whenever user needs to type in something in the application, control switches to desktop and he can use the desktop keyboard . Whatever he has typed needs to be sent back and app should behave based on what he typed ? Is something like this possible ?

Thanks for any help given :)

  • Thanks @stepan_stulov . Ya am using unity and am talking about a single app here. Since am talking about VR , its a single app instance running in the desktop and VR device is just the viewer .

    Apologies, I must have misunderstood your question.
