Setting Up Visual Studio

To set up Visual Studio, we have our primary programming environment. Now, we need to set up Visual Studio to compile our code and deploy it to the HoloLens (or emulator). 

Let's perform the following steps for deployment:

  1. On the right-hand side of the screen, Solution Explorer should have HoloLens Beginners Guide (Universal Windows) selected, exactly like the preceding screenshot. If it is not, select it.
  2. Now, click on the Debug drop-down menu and select Release. This is the Solution Configurations selection.
