Description Dominik Rupp 2017-01-29 17:08:45 UTC
When using VS2015 to archive an Android package and distribute it directly to google play using the Alpha Track (and probably also when using Beta, Rollout or Production) Visual Studio opens a browser to login into google. After the login the URL changes to 'localhost/...' and the process is stuck.

I tired to reproduce this in 2015 (And 2017 for good measure) but was unable to produce the reported results. Are you able to confirm if this is still an issue?
