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.

Hololens emulator under Visual Studio (update 3)

edited July 2016 in Questions And Answers

Hello all !

I am trying to emulate the Hololens with Visual Studio 3 but, although the Hololens Emulator is available in VS parameters, Windows.Graphics.Holographic and Windows.Perception.Spatial cannot be found.

I have tripled check the setup, repaired Visual Studio, etc. Anybody has any idea how I could get the emulator to work ?

Thanks !


  • Hi @rubanmauve,
    Double-check that you have the latest HoloLens Emulator installed.

    Sometimes, the proper files are not found when NuGet is turned off. Open NuGet settings in VS (Tools > NuGet Package Manager > Package Manager Settings) and verify that 'Allow NuGet to download missing package' and 'Automatically check for missing package during build in Visual Studio' options are both checked.

  • I have the same problem. Emulator installed and visible. NuGet settings as above. Still Windows.Graphics.Holographic and Windows.Perception.Spatial not found.
