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.

  • Also, if you had already built your app previous to adding the DLL into your hierarchy, you may need to delete your folder that you build to (commonly App, but not always). Then when you create a build it will get added into the visual studio project correctly. You also need to do this if you make a change to the DLL and copy the new version of the file in.

  • Thank you for answer.
    My settings is the same with @Jimbohalo10 .But my exception is not the result of this. it's because my environment of computer, i have installed 2 version(17/15) of vs. It's good when i debug the same code in other clean computer that just installed vs2015.
