Hololens app on desktop

Hi all,

Currently I'm developing an app in Unity using UWP. However I would like to have the same app running on windows 10 just as a normal app (to connect it to the hololens as well). However whenever I build it from Unity and then deploy the app to the local machine, it either starts the mixed reality portal and tries to run it in there or doesn't run at all. My question is thus, is there a possibility to run the same app on windows 10 as well as the hololens.

kind regards

    Any news on this?

    Yeah somehow when building it in Unity it changed the flag for virtual reality to true, therefore one could not build it for the Desktop. When removing the flag (in player settings) and using buildsetting: "PC" the build worked perfectly fine.

    Hello! I've been trying the same thing and my build worked fine too, thanks to your solution.
    However, I'm not being able to use the mouse click instead of the tap gesture. How do I do that?
