NoDo Tools won't deploy to Pre-Mango phone after Zune upgrade to 4.8

This morning I had an issue where after updating the desktop Zune software to the new version (4.8) Visual Studio (running the NoDo development tools*) became unable to deploy or debug apps running on a phone. This was the case with a phone running a Nodo version (specifically 7.0.7392) and another phone running a pre-NoDo build.

Obviously, losing the ability to deploy to and test on an actual device was of concern. After a few worried minutes involving restarting the software (Zune & Visual Studio) and rebooting the phone we resolved this issue by rebooting the PC. Panic over.

Hopefully knowing that a reboot may be required may save someone else a bit of time.


* I have a separate machine running the Mango SDK RC which wasn't affected.

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
