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.

Only audio & no holograms (black screen) when unity project deployed to Hololens

Hi everyone,

I'm working on a Augmented Reality project in Unity 2018.2.9f1. So, I use unity to develop the project, then build a solution for Visual Studio 2017 and then, via Visual Studio, deploy the project to Microsoft Hololens.

I did this in the last few months without any problem, and everything was working fine: the project worked in the unity editor when I hit PLAY, and worked exactly in the same way on the Hololens. Then, all of a sudden, something went wrong and now, when I deploy the project to the Hololens, I have only a black screen. No holograms at all, and not even the "made with unity" logo when the app starts. However, I can still hear all the sounds that I created, as if the app was working as normal.
During the deploy process I get no error and no warnings.
In unity editor everything works fine, even when I hit play.

Also, I reinstalled Visual Studio, no change; in Unity, I cleaned the cash, canceled the Library folder and had unity to recreate it, no change; I exported my original project as an asset, created a new project, imported in it my exported asset, no change.
Hololens software is updated to the latest version. Windows 10 is updated to the latest version available.

If I run on the Hololens old versions of my project I can see the holograms.

Worst of all, if I create a new project in Unity and add to a new scene just a cube, build a solution and deploy it to the Hololens I can see the cube and also the "made with unity" logo.

I guess that the problem has to do with something in my project. An asset, maybe, a script, something wrong with some setting? However, the project was working fine until a few days ago and I did not introduce major changes to it.

I'm not a developer; I'm getting familiar with unity, but I guess not familiar enough to find a solution to this situation.
So my question is: where do I start from in order to find out what is wrong with my project?

Any help would really be appreciated.
