Sending a barcode to a software on my pc (wifi available)

edited November 2018 in Questions And Answers

Hi guys,

I'm a starting programmer on the Microsoft Hololens. I would like to scan a barcode with the Hololens and then send it as string or int to my PC an put it in another software. Is this possible and how should I do this ?

Thanks in advance!

    I tried to make a connection by sending a string with sockets (TCP). It works in Unity but when I want to build my solution to visual studio 2017 there are some build errors due to System. Net is not supported by unity. I tried to insert an asset 'System.Net.dll' but it doesn't work. Do you have a solution for this?

    public void Click()
    client = new Socket(AddressFamily.InterNetwork, SocketType.Stream, ProtocolType.Tcp);
    IPAddress ip = IPAddress.Parse("");
    IPEndPoint remotePc = new IPEndPoint(ip, 7001);

        string data = "hallo";
        byte[] byData = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(data);
