This is annoying as it blocks me form editing in Visual Studio for almost a minute as the app is deploying. Please make the popup non modal.

We no longer display a modal dialog window while the app is being packaged and installs. This window disappears once the user selects an available device / emulator image, allowing editing during the deployment process.
