Description PJ 2012-05-01 12:45:29 UTC
Occasionally when deploying to the emulator, a step would hang. This has happened to me on "Installing 'packagename'" and also on "Installing assemblies"

Trying to stop the deploy was ineffective. Quitting MD prompted me with 'The program XXX is still running, would you like to close it?' But then it hung.

Not sure if there are more exact steps than to deploy a bunch of times, as I experienced it on multiple projects but only on certain runs (most of the time this behavior did not occur and deploy succeeded) with no changes in between.

I experienced it on Debug config on Emulators only, but I haven't extensively tested other configurations so I may have just not seen the issue there.

Will update with further environments if found.

Am seeing this fairly often. Bumping the severity.
Comment 2 PJ 2012-05-07 14:59:29 UTC
On RC2 MD and RC3 MFA I have not been seeing this issue. Will close for now and re-open if I experience the issue again.
