VS community 2015 crashing while deploying windows phone 8.1 app


  • Hi there,

    I am facing problem about Visual Studio 2015. Its always crashing whenever I am trying to deploy the app from it to Windows  Phone 8.1 . The issue is whenever I connect my phone and try to deploy its crashing at least 3 times and after that its working file until I remove and reconnect my phone to laptop. My phone is already registered for developer option. The issue is related to visual studio not to the phone because I tried with many devices but facing same problem.

  • Hi SunilKDev,

    According to your description, has this issue happened recently and it works before?

    If yes, I suggest you had better run the VS in safe mode (devenv /SafeMode), which could prevent all third-party VSPackages from loading when Visual Studio starts, thus ensuring stable execution.

    And please update your VS to the latest version (Tools->Updates and Extensions-> Updates-> update option beginning with KB letters).

    If not, it happened just after install VS, so I suggest you could repair the VS.
