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.

Launching 3D Viewer with a 3MF file opens the file on Windows desktop but not HoloLens

edited December 2018 in 3D Viewer Beta

Using this code, a 3MF file is opened in the 3D Viewer app on Windows desktop. When running the same code on HoloLens, the 3D Viewer app is opened but the file is not.
I would like the file to open as a hologram ready to place. You can see this experience in the Topographic app by clicking on or saying "Open Model"

var familyName =  "Microsoft.Microsoft3DViewer_8wekyb3d8bbwe";

 var options = new LauncherOptions
         DisplayApplicationPicker = true,
         PreferredApplicationDisplayName = "3D Viewer",
         PreferredApplicationPackageFamilyName = familyName, 
         TargetApplicationPackageFamilyName = familyName ,
         DesiredRemainingView = Windows.UI.ViewManagement.ViewSizePreference.UseHalf,

    await Launcher.LaunchFileAsync(file, options);
