Description Frank A. Krueger 2012-05-17 21:21:50 UTC
The new MfA (4.2.1.196198126) is supposed to show me deployment progress in the VS status bar.

It does not. It always says Ready. I keep hitting F5 and Ctrl+F5 and nothing happens. Every so often the debugger comes up, but more often than not, my phone's screen just turns black and I don't know why. At least the old modal dialog showed errors.

This means I have no idea what MfA is doing.

I *really* miss the old deployment dialog as I have no sense of what's going on after I press F5.

Would you consider posting status updates in the toolbar that is guaranteed visible instead of relying on Visual Studio to display in the status bar?

Or, can you give an option to have the modal dialog back?

As it is, I'm reverting back to the old MfA as this is unusable.
