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.

    I had to UNINSTALL from Control Panel VS2015 update 2 RC. Basically the download in the link is VS2015 Community and if you watch adds a section call 2.1(beta8) in the UWP library, which does not exist in the incremental updater. From Update 1 to Update 2. Hence you have to uninstall your Community version and install fresh 20th March version.

    VS 2015 Professional and Enterprise do NOT have these updates, and in this case make a new partition and install Win 10 from the ISO kit 14291. Then install as per instructions in the link
