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.

Using unity to build a hololens app

I have an unity application that is is built to UWP( windows 10) and run in Hololens. I have some code that needs an external package that i install in the generated project(s) with nuget. This will update the project.json file. The problem is when i rebuild from unity. The project.json file is reset.
How can i change the content in the generated project.json(so it won't be reset to default), ideally from Unity.?

(I have tried to add the dlls from the nuget package to assets\plugin, but then i get a serialization error when building the generated solution to master build from the UWP visual studio solution)

What is the best practise adding external nuget packages?

  • The root cause for the problem was the dlls added in asset\plugins. To solve the problem with the serialization i needed to check the Don't process checkbox in the platform settings for the dll in unity before building to uwp.
