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.

Failed to start package Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App

Hi There,

Last night while I was updating apps through the Microsoft Store app on the HoloLens, it looked like the Microsoft Store app had crashed and went missing from the app menu. Since then (having conducted a hard restart of the device), the Microsoft Store app remains missing from the app menu on the device.

I see the 'Microsoft Store' app listed as an option in the drop-down of apps through the developers portal however receive an error message when trying to launch the app:

'Failed to start package Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App'

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jason

    After 10 days, it looks like the Microsoft Store app has re-appeared in the app directory on the HoloLens and appears to work fine now. Not sure what would have happened however I'm thinking perhaps a system update fixed the issue? In my case, it looks like patience was the solution. I'm happy that I didn't reset the device as I would have lost all the content on the device.
