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.

Mixed Reality Technical Preview (MRTP)

I was given an Acer Mixed Reality Headset, but it didn't come with any documents. I've managed to download and install everything I need to run the headset and it's really great but I have no way of gaining access to the link to download the MRTP through Unity.


This is the link to the forum but it doesn't work unless you're granted access. Whom do I need to speak with to gain access?



  • Please see this document: Install the tools

    The public builds of Unity do not yet include support for building mixed reality apps on Windows desktop. Until public builds are available, you'll need to acquire a private build of the Mixed Reality Technical Preview (MRTP) by working with your Microsoft account manager. Please do not attempt to contact Unity directly for this access.

    You can tell your Microsoft contact to find the right person to help you on this request.
