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.

Skype for hololens failing

Skype for hololens seems to give the skype beta logo, show a panel window for a second, then go back to the logo again on an infinite loop. Does anyone know why this might be? I was hoping to show it off in a live demo tomorrow and its pretty disappointing.. :/


  • ah.. embarrassing.. the wifi had dropped so that's why it couldn't go further, although the restarting loop was quite weird and not too helpful.
    I'm not getting 'trouble signing in to skype please try again later' skype sign in works fine on 2D devices.
