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.
