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.

unity 5.5. - deploy direct to device in build settings over USB from Unity?

edited January 2017 in Discussion

It looks like that in the Build Settings drop down menu, there is actually a target device: HoloLens. However, it seems that unlike build to iOS or Android, it still does not build straight to device over USB (still have to open the generated .sln in Visual Studio to remote/wifi deploy)

What does setting it to HoloLens do? Is there a way to USB deploy instead of over remote?



  • So, they Build and Run on setting is what you would need to display the HoloLens to do what you are expecting the Target Device field to do. I'm not actually sure what effect the Target Device has or is intended to have....

  • I think its just the difference between setting the target platform for the built project to by Holographic vs Universal.
