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.

Holograms 240 - Chapter 3 - Shared Coordinates - Can't place energyhub

edited October 2016 in Questions And Answers

I am stuck on Chapter 3 - Shared Coordinates. I follow instructions exactly. I am unable to create the world anchor and thus cannot place the energyhub. I have two HoloLens', neither of them are able to place the hub. It just keeps gazing around and the air click never works. The tutorial video says you need to gaze around for a little while to establish world anchor. Any ideas?

  • I've done the same thing according to Tutorial but nothing works: can't place energyhub. Could you and anyone help me how to work?

    I have two HoloLens. According to the tutorial, I changed server address ..***.190 (IPv4 of HoLoLens #1) and deployed the app to both of them and nothing works. Do I need to select HoloToolkit-Sharing-240 menu of unity?

  • For me, I have a slightly different issue. I could place the EnergyHub using the first Hololens and the second one could join in and see the same hologram successfully. This was done in my office. The app was deployed to both hololens from the same PC using the same IP address on the sharing service.

    The problem is when I moved to a different office 5-6 meters away, I couldn't place the energy hub. It seems the anchor could not be established and uploaded to the server. When I returned to my PC, I could see both devices logging in to the sharing service but don't know why the anchor couldn't be uploaded.

    Anyone has the similar issue?
