I originally asked my question on Stackoverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35795725/windows-iot-deployment-on-raspberrypi2-gets-ignored but was directed to this beautiful page:
I installed an Windows 10 IoT on my RaspberryPi2 and also all the Visual Studio 2015 stuff I need to get going. Everything works, if I debug from my VS, but as soon as I deploy, nothing happens: The Raspberry Pi2 doesn't start automatically and I also don't see any special options on the GUI.
My VS output is like this:
1>------ Deploy started: Project: BlinkyWebService, Configuration: Release ARM ------ 1>Creating a new clean layout... 1>Copying files: Total <1 mb to layout... 1>Checking whether required frameworks are installed... 1>Registering the application to run from layout... 1>Deployment complete (10237ms). Full package name: "BlinkyWebService_18.104.22.168_arm__1w720vyc4ccym" ========== Build: 0 succeeded, 0 failed, 1 up-to-date, 0 skipped ========== ========== Deploy: 1 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 skipped ==========
The C#-deployment is described here: https://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/win10/AppDeployment.htm , but only the last point seems relevant here:
Having successfully deployed and debugged your UWP application, create a Release version by simply changing the Visual Studio toolbar configuration dropdown from Debug to Release. You can now build and deploy your app to your device by selecting Build | Rebuild Solution and Build | Deploy Solution.
Unfortunately, it doesn't give much more informations than this.
