    I'm trying to deploy a text file to the hololens, but the popup keeps saying this.

    I'm using miscrosoft edge as my communitation browser.

    I'm just trying to upload a txt file to the unity shared app folder. The microsoft hololens forum doesn't seem to be responding anytime soon

    I know file access is a lot more limited on HoloLens than on regular PCs. For example, to save and open locally, you have to use FileOpenPicker and FileSavePicker (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/mixed-reality/App_model.html#file_pickers). But I think those are just for when you're running directly on the HoloLens and just want to load/save there.

    So I don't have an immediate answer. I'll try to dig around and find you something, though. Hopefully that link can point you in the right direction until I can find anything for you, at least.

    It works well with IE Browser, but not Edge or FireFox.
