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.

Kiosk Mode unstable


I've recently developed an application for Hololens (using Unity) and it is working fine - stable 60 fps, loads very fast, always runs without problems etc.

However, I've upgraded my device to Business Suite, which allows to use the Kiosk Mode. I've enabled it (using Hololens web portal with Dev Mode on), selected my app and restarted the device.
Now strange things start to happen...

When device boot completes, my app seems to be launched - I can see custom splashscreen with my logo. After a while, splashscreen disappears and then.... nothing. I can't see anything, there's no feedback, input is not working... Just like the application hanged and there's only "black screen" (as black is transparent).
Normally, the main menu of my app should appear.

However, when I now put the device to sleep (by shortly pressing power button) and then wake it up, the application main menu will appear (mostly, in about 80% of cases) and it will work fine.
What is more interesting, sometimes (in about 1 in 10 tries) the Kiosk Mode works just fine - after turning Hololens on, the application is launched normally and no above symptoms appear.

Application is working perfectly outside of the Kiosk Mode.
No third party libraries or dll's are used in code (aside from the standard Unity Hololens Toolkit).
Hololens runs the latest update with up to date software.

Did anyone encountered something similiar?
Is there any clue I could check?

Making the first scene totally empty and then transitioning to menu after a few seconds didn't work...
