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.

Spectator View calibration, picture isn't taken

edited January 2018 in Questions And Answers

Hi, I tried to implement spectator view that utilizes webcam through MixedRealityCompanionKit library and ended up with some troubles.
I think the library document is well-organized but somehow running Calibration solution makes an error in release mode x86 that prints "picture isn't taken"

The document says "If a checkerboard with the expected grid dimension is in view, a picture will automatically be taken from the HoloLens' and camera's perspectives."

Also, Hololens view is default view. is it normal?
I don't know what I'm missing here.
Any comment would be really helpful

Thank you, in advance!.


  • I solved the problem.
    hololens should plugged in computer. And Maybe device portal isn't open!
    I always open the device portal. So it didn't work.
    When I close the device portal, it works
