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.

Local WACK submission giving me an Default Splash Screen error ?

Hello Devs I am performing a local submission to the WACK system of VS 2017 in preparation for a store release soon and am failing due to a single error in the build . I was curious to know if Anyone else had encountered or found a Solution for the error ?

The full error Reads :

Branding
Error Found: The branding validation test encountered the following errors:
Image file SplashScreen.scale-200.png is a default image.
Impact if not fixed: Windows Store apps are expected to be complete and fully functional. Apps using the default images e.g. from templates or SDK samples present a poor user experience and cannot be easily identified in the store catalog.
How to fix: Replace default images with something more distinct and representative of your app.

I Started by replacing all of the Store Logo Icons at the various ( square) size ranges and then republished again getting the error. I then read that perhaps the issue has to do with a default logo Tag in the projects package.appxmanifest file and again no luck . Has anyone else encountered and addressed this issue in their build ? I will attach a screenshot of the error in my Validation report as well .

    Ahh I found the solution , I had to copy over the Default images in the Visual studio project assets folder with my icons resized and renamed to the exact same dimensions then recreate the Master package . That allowed me to pass!
