Error occurred in deployment step 'Install app for SharePoint': Method "LoadApp" does not exist. RRS feed

  • Question

  • While deploying a SharePoint-hosted (or any other kind I have tried so far) app, I keep getting the error in the title. I have looked at this post ( http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/fil-PH/sharepointdevelopment/thread/6616e78b-d848-4ba2-94d8-ed30e66b648 ), but is doesn't help me since I am not doing Office 365 dev. I need it to deploy to an on premises SharePoint Server (standalone dev machine).

    I also made sure the sharepoint compenents were installed: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30355

    I can deploy through the UI of the developer site, but not through VS hosted on a separate Win 7 machine.

    It can successfully uninstall the app, if I had deployed it previously (via the UI) but always give this error next:

    ------ Build started: Project: SignUpApp2013, Configuration: Debug Any CPU ------

    Uninstall app for SharePoint:
