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.

User information

I am using the code below to collect Account Information:

var res = await User.FindAllAsync(UserType.LocalUser);
foreach (var r in res)
{
  var props = await r.GetPropertiesAsync(new string[] { KnownUserProperties.DisplayName });
  foreach (var p in props)
  {
    Debug.Write(p.Key + ": " + p.Value);
  }
}

On Mobile Phone this return values, on HoloLens not, something wrong?

    I just went to search for this topic and found this. If you go to the Settings app, then select the Privacy option and select the the User Info option, you can manually turn on the permission for User Account Information for your app. This will make the above code work.

    Of course, this isn't an optimal solution. On a non flat app, I'm not sure if there is a way to have the permissions dialog show up. Does anyone know a way around this?

    How did you managed to run this code , this is giving me errors on HoloLens ?
    How did you added "User information Capability"?
