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.

Can't sign into windows store when creating app package

edited May 2016 in Questions And Answers

Hi I get a window like this:

Create app packages

Sign in to the Windows Store
"Visual studio encountered an error and can't contact the Microsoft account service."

press button, same thing.

May be related to this. Note, the suggested fix is for vs2012 and, the devenv.exe.config isn't a thing anymore. (Also, why would I have to do all that?)


This is VS2015 update 2.
