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.

How to get second Hololens to join a shared session?

I am trying to get my second hololens to join the shared session in holo academy 240 chapter 3, but it isn't joining. I am able to place the anchor just fine when the first hololens joins the session.

    Solved! The 240 tutorial seems to skip over this step but I fixed it by launching the Holotoolkit sharing tab found at the very top of the Unity editor. (next to Component and Window)

    After launching that it gives you the computer IP address in a console window. Then you build your project without exiting the console window. In visual studio you build without debugging and it creates the session using the console window.
