this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
When the deploy flag is not set for an Android project, and you try to run it, it looks like nothing happened.
The only hint as to what's wrong is a couple of lines in the build output:
2>------ Skipped Deploy: Project: GroceryList, Configuration: Debug Any CPU ------
2>Project not selected to build for this solution configuration
========== Build: 1 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
========== Deploy: 0 succeeded, 0 failed, 1 skipped ==========
This isn't obvious, and it isn't obvious how to resolve it either.
This situation is fairly common due to XS bug 8183, so we need to handle it better.
Is there any way we could remove the need for this flag, or set it automatically? At the every least we could display a dialog telling the user how to set the flag.
This is a vey old bug and I don't think it makes sense anymore. I'm resolving as invalid, but please do reopen if you feel it still makes sense.
