How to create a signed .apk with Visual Studio Community 2015 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User193986 posted

    Today I installed an upgrade of Xamarin for Visual Studio 2015. Unfortunately I notice two issues:

    1. the "Create .apk" item has disappeared from the "Build" menu. I did find out that this was replaced with the "Archive Manager"
    2. When I did create a .apk before two .apk files were created: an "ordinary" and a "Signed .apk". With the Archive Manager the first one is created, but the Signed isn't anymore. Since my Android device is only parsing Signed .apk I can't install my app anymore

    Can anyone please tell me how I can solve this?

    Found it. I created a new keyStore and now I can create a Signed .apk Note: you will have to remove a previous version of your app, otherwise you will get a "Application not installed" error
