Why does Wikitude not support Windows Standalone build ?

  • We are using the Unity Professional SDK 9.3
  • Unity version is 2020.3.2f1


While developing our application and targeting Windows devices (Windows Tablet and PC, NOT Hololens), we found out that Wikitude only supports building for UWP from Unity, and not for "Standalone Windows PC".

It turns out developing UWP applications is really a mess, and Wikitude is the only asset in our project that does not support Windows Standalone builds.

Could you explain why the PC Standalone platform is not supported, especially when the AR features work fine from the Unity Editor using the PC integrated Webcam ?

Do you plan to support Windows Standalone builds in the future ?

Best regards,

Hi Thales 3D Team,

We were and are still focusing on mobile with our products. That's the simplest explanation why we don't support exporting to desktop/standalone. Although it would be technically possible, testing this as an additional supported platform would have brought a huge extra junk of QA tasks on our plate. That and the fact, that not many users asked for this feature in the first place, are an additional factor why we never supported standalone...

Kind regards,
