How do I side load a UWP app to Halolens RRS feed

All replies

  • Hello,
    You could use the Windows Device Portal to configure and manage your device remotely over a USB connection or network. You can follow the steps below to connect to Device Portal for HoloLens:
    • Enable Developer Mode and Device Portal on your device.
    • Connect your device and PC via local network or USB.
    • Navigate to the Device Portal page in your browser.
    In Apps page, to sideload your app:
    • Click “browse” and find your app package (.appx).
    • Click “browse” to find the certificate file (.cer).
    • Then click Add dependency. If you have more than one, please add each one individually.
    • Click “Go” under “Deploy”.
    • To install another app, click the “Reset” to clear the fields.

    You might refer to Device Portal for HoloLens.

    Best regards,
    Mattew Wu
