    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.

    Hi folks,
    I just downloaded the HoloLens Technical Preview from here: http://unity3d.com/pages/windows/hololens#download and when going through the Holograms 100 tutorial here: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/holographic/holograms_100, the step "Chapter 4" which mentions about exporting from Unity to VS is where I am stuck.
    When I click File -> Build Settings -> scroll down to Windows Store under Platforms, I notice that it says: "No Windows Store Module loaded" and below that there is a button which says: "Open Download Page". When I click the button, it takes me here: http://beta.unity3d.com/download/24...tup-Metro-Support-for-Editor-5.4.0b10-HTP.exe which returns a HTTP 404 error.
    Can you please "light it up" ? :)
    Thanks,
    Prashant

    Hello,

    Can you please try this link to download metro support?

    http://beta.unity3d.com/download/24077ef8c12f/public_download.html.

    Thank you,
    Wesley

    Thanks! That worked. However it'd be great if the actual link from Unity IDE itself works, so please get it corrected soon.
    Regards,

    Like I mentioned in my original post:
    When I click File -> Build Settings -> scroll down to Windows Store under Platforms, I notice that it says: "No Windows Store Module loaded" and below that there is a button which says: "Open Download Page". When I click the button, it takes me here: http://beta.unity3d.com/download/24...tup-Metro-Support-for-Editor-5.4.0b10-HTP.exe which returns a HTTP 404 error.
    I am saying that when you click on that button, the link above is non-existent, and that's what I would like to get fixed.
    The URL you gave me above is not the obvious way for developers to download the module right?

    That is a good issue, thank you for pointing that out. :)

    On the website, the are install steps on what is needed for the technical preview. It does state to install UWP support and a link to click, this downloads Metro Support in Step 2.

    Yep, agree with you on the install steps...Actually I stumbled onto this due to my own ignorance of only following Step 1 there, and not going through Step 2 :). Thanks for your help Wesley.

    I'm experiencing this same issue with the current build, the Download button in Build Settings takes me to http://beta.unity3d.com/download/e3e057da3607/UnitySetup-Metro-Support-for-Editor-5.4.0b24-HTP.exe which is a 404. I've tried http://beta.unity3d.com/download/e3e057da3607/public_download.html based on the previously posted link but it's also a 404 page. Also, when I go to install this there isn't a destination automatically selected. Where should this package be installed relative to the main application's directory?

    Hi, looks like the 5.4.0f3 download links are now broken :

    downloading the 5.4.0f3 (Hololens development) on a W10 enterprise machine. I'm getting some "...problem downloading " error messages while running the download assistant. One is for some kind of documentation, the other is for the Metro component, thus preventing any Windows store builds once installed.
    "http://beta.unity3d.com/download/b2...itySetup-Metro-Support-for-Editor-5.4.0f3.exe The error message is : File Not Found (404)"

    tried the 32bit version : download fails right away. file not Found.

    Hi the link itself works - it starts the download assistant - but files are missing during the install process. It is no longer possible to install 5.4.0f3 (Hololens development) properly.

    Having the same issue, the most recent Technical Preview (5.4.0f3) release has a broken URL for the .NET Runtime download, causing the Unity installer to complain of having 'lost connection' when it tries to download the installer for the Runtime.

    Same problem for a number of the earlier versions of the Technical Preview, would appreciate this getting fixed a lot.

    I was able to download the Assist at one point yesterday, but now I receive this error when opening up the bootstrapper:

    I need to build an old project in 5.4.0f3. The page at https://unity3d.com/partners/microsoft/hololens#archive-section offers downloads "for developers who have existing projects and wish to access the old builds see below." This is great! But then I need UnitySetup-Metro-Support-for-Editor-5.4.0f3-HTP.exe which is 404'd as described above. Without the corresponding Metro support downloads, all the links at that page are basically useless. Please help!

    This issue still persists almost a year since the original post, with the links on this page being broken:
    https://unity3d.com/partners/microsoft/hololens#archive-section

    I need access to 5.4.0b22 HTP to maintain compatibility with an older build/project. Is there a working link available to download this version?

    Thank you!
