This happens a few times a day while debugging.
I click start and watch it build  It then says the csproj failed to build with 4 errors:

Build server returned an error.
Failed to obtain list of devices.
Failed to retrieve info from the build server
Failed to obtain list of devices.
Remote build step failed.

After this happens, I click the refresh button on the bar. And it tells me I need to activate my build server. These bugs may be related.

Dean I think this may be related to the reliability of the connection to the server, which we are hoping to address in security-fix branch. Thoughts?

Can you re-test on the latest builds from mtvs-securityfix , we made some fixes and changes that will resolve these issues.
