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.

Is it possible to run an Shared experience server on Hololens device?

edited February 2019 in Questions And Answers

Im new to Hololens and everything about it, but currently Im trying to get some answers about shared experiences. I have seen that there is an SharedService.exe and thats what creates the server locally on a computer. My question is can the service that creates the server run on Hololens device and the Hololens act as server and client? How can I achieve that?


  • I don't believe you can with SharedService.exe since it is not a UWP app.

    However, you could do PeerToPeer networking and have 1 hololens act as a 'server'. UNET is the best options I know of for peer to peer on Hololens.


  • Ok, thanks for your help will definitely will give a look at UNET.
