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.

Cannot find PDB file

Hello !

When I launch the Hololens Emulator via Visual Studio 3, I cannot see the Start Menu but see a turning cube.

Looking at my output, I can see that many PDB files are missing. How can I fix that ?

Thanks !

  • @rubanmauve,
    The majority of the symbols you list (ex: shlwapi.dll) are for Windows operating system files. In general, I have found that OS symbols are most useful when developing kernel level components (drivers, etc.). I very rarely have needed these symbol files while developing my applications.

    That said, the Windows team does publish symbol files. You can find more information here and here.

    Thanks!
    David
