The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.
There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.
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.
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, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.
And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Do you always need to add the dependencies when side loading an app?
We have now developed a couple of apps and when one of our devs sends us a build, it sometimes works just to install (via the device portal) the appxbundle file and sometimes we need to add the dependencies.
For these projects, we have not used any other libraries so there should be no need for dependencies.
Would be great if someone could shed a bit of light on this behaviour
