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.

Spatial anchors not persisting between hololens restarts?

edited June 2017 in Questions And Answers


I have spatial anchors working, sort of I guess. They seem to be persisting between app sessions, if I close the app and reopen it they holograms are located in the same spot. However if the hololens shuts down and I restart it, the anchors no longer persist. Is this how it normally works? Is there any way to persist anchors even after the hololens is restarted?

I know this is probably possible because the Holograms app leaves the holograms pinned in the same place even between restarts.


  • Are you using the Anchor store? There are several examples in this forum, here is one.

  • @MarcDub Yes I am using the anchor store, had come across the link you shared earlier. Still unable to get it to work between hololens restarts. It's completely fine between app restarts.
