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.
Lots of errors loading a Unity project into Visual Studio... would appreciate your help!
I am not a programmer but greatly appreciate any advice you can give. I have been following tutorials online about how to display 3d objects in hololens. Before about a week ago everything ran smoothly: I would upload a .fbx file as an asset, build a solution in unity, open it with visual studio, and click start without debugging and it would run in the hololens. Now I annot even get a basic cube to work.
I follow everything as it is laid out in the tutorials: I open unity, add an empty game object, right click and add cube, save scene, build settings, add scene switch to windows store, universal 10, d3d, check unity C# projects, and click build.
When I find the .sln file and open in visual studio, I get 135 errors showing in the error list.
The errors are all either
CS 0234 - The type or namespace name 'Runtime (different file name for each error)' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)
CS0246 - The type or namespace name 'FrameworkDisplayName (different file name for each error)' could not be found (are you missing a directive or assembly reference?)
CS 0518 - Predefined type 'System.String (or System.Object or System. Void)' is not defined or imported.
CS0012 - The type 'object (different file name for different errors)' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'mscorlib, Version= 126.96.36.199, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c56193e089'.
There is one CS1545
Property, indexer, or event 'CoreApplication.Suspending' is not supported by the language; try directly calling accessor methods CoreApplication.add_Suspending(EventHandler)' or 'CoreApplication.remove_Suspending(EventRegistrationToken)'
These errors come up despite that I followed tutorials closely. Thank you all for your assistance with this.
