If i install the release apk of my android app on the official Android 5.0.1 simulator (or device) using this command line:
adb install -l C:\DiskJ\MasterUni\ac\Ac.Droid\bin\Release\com.shapr-Signed.apk
Then if i use Visual Studio to install a debug version of the same app on the same simulator/device, i receive a popup telling me the app version is incompatible.
After this message, the app icon can not be found in the simulator/device, and opening the settings/app menu from the device shows the com.app name only with a size of 0 bytes. And tapping it crashes the settings activity. There is no way to remove it completely.
I have checked this issue but not able to reproduce this issue. To reproduce this issue I have followed the steps mentioned below.
1. Open VS 2013 and crate a simple android app.
2. Install the release apk of android app suceessfully on android device via below command.
>adb install C:\Users\udam\Desktop\App303.App303-Aligned.apk
3. Deploy the same app in debug mode on device sucessfully.
