Error deploying robot app

Sat May 23, 2015 8:49 am

Hi all,
I'm trying to deploy the Windows 10 robot kit app (https://github.com/ms-iot/build2015-robot-kit) to RPi2, but I keep getting an activation failure error:

Has anyone had a similar problem?

Btw, I'm building/deploying from a Win8.1 machine using VS Pro 2015 RC.

Hi jd001982,

Sadly I don't have a solution to the issue you outlined. Although I wrote a blog post about common deployment issues with Windows IoT apps. (http://blog.chrisbriggsy.com/Getting-Started-Win10-IoT/) I recommend giving the steps outlined a go, on the long shot they inadvertently fix your issue.

Furthermore when you find the solution to your deployment issue can you please reply to this thread with the solution.

Best of luck jd001982,

You can also ask questions here: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forum ... WindowsIoT. There might be a broader audience. Microsoft participates there as well.

may Sound funny, but what Shows up when you hit the "help" button? I can remember a few times when it really helped to hit the "help" button in this message - boxes. Of course most of the times it does not help at all :D

good luck!

I checked MS internal resources and didn't find any other reports of this error.
Starting with the basics:
Can you ping the RPi2?
Have you built the application as ARM?
Have you set the project Properties -> Debug to Remote Machine, IP address of your RPi2 and no authentication?
Can you deploy and run a "hello world" to your RPi2?
