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.
QR Scan in UWP with USB2.0 Webcam and Kinect 2
This is a modification of the original project in Unity QR Code/Barcode Scanner and Generator---Cross Platform
Please make sure you BUY a copy of this Unity Asset Store app,
if you intend to work with it
This was for Android and iOS (iPhone), which have been disabled. To make this work with UWP the original plugins have been removed. The Multitasking had be disabled at its not needed.
Make sure you are running Windows Anniversary (14393).
Get WinRAR to extract the Unity Import package at bottom of page
Create a New Unity app call it
"QRcodeScanUWp54f3". Go to Asset Import custom package from downloaded location
When imported click on Assets\Scene and double click on "Assets\QRcode\Scene"
Click on Unity player icon.
On a USB2.0 webcam a large A4 picture was QR code was detected.
If you use Kinect 2, firstly remove USB plug and uninstall driver. Reinstall plug and the new driver date 17th October 2016 version 1701 is loaded which will enable Web Cam Kinect 2.
Use the Windows 10 Camera app to test this.
Now run the Unity Player again and use Kinect 2 webcam with QRcode. See how much quicker this works.
The new code for UWP is in Assets\QRcode\Plugins\WSAPlayer called zxing.unity.dll
That's all you really need to read QR in UWP and HoloLens.
Rebuild using WSA Player, select the WebCam and microphone capabilities and this will deploy as a WSA app on Windows 10
This will also work on a Lumina 635 Windows 10 (14393) phone without modification
Finally try on the HoloLens device and add the HoloLens Toolkit Webcam, which is the only bit untested now
