VS2015 Community Python Windows IoT Core project deploing problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to deploy my first Python app in VS2015 Community on to the Raspberry PI 3 connected by the Ethernet.

    The Dashboard recognizes Device and its IP of course.

    In continuing, I am trying to set up my very simple project ("print("Hello, World from IoT!")) that has been taken from here:


    and I am following instructions from here:


    According to the instructions, I am setting Debug -> Any CPU (or ARM) -> Remote Device,

    And in Project Properties: Configuration -> Active(Debug), Platform -> Any CPU, there is nothing else, Remote Device -> IP of the Device, Port -> 5678.

    Unfortunately when I am trying to deploy the app on the RPI 3, I've got an Error Message.

    Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

  • "Unable to start debugging. The startup project cannot be launched. Ensure that the correct project is set as the startup project. The startup project can be changed by selecting ... (I did it more than once) Additionally make sure its debug settings are correctly configured in project properties"

  • so you have a solution with more projects? which one is selected as startup project?

  • No, I do not,

    There is the only one application in the project: "HelloWorld_Python" and it is setted as a StartUp Project.
