I understand the need for registration, I don't understand why I am unable to deploy to my device to test an application? Once you have registered, which I have, I should
be allowed to test an app on a real life device. I understand that this is what will happen, but why isn't it happening now. MS should have got this sorted before they got people to register.
As I said, I understand the need to register. I don't understand why I am unable to deploy my app to my phone now? There are at least 2 reasons for this.
1) As a developer, I wish to test my new app on a real device. I'm unable to do this at present, so I won't be developing any apps as I can't test them.
2) Do Microsoft seriously believe that ever application written for windows phone is a commercial application? I might want to write something which is specific to me and
my work. I don't want to sell it or put it to the Marketplace. It’s for personal use only. How does that type of development fit into Microsoft’s phone vision?
For the 1st time last year, Apple made more money than Microsoft predominantly due to the success of the iPhone. It has 200,000 plus apps available to use. MS Marketplace
has about 200 apps. MS are seriously shooting themselves in the foot here unless they quickly resolve this problem of testing and deployment. At present, if I want to make money writing phone apps, I choose Apple.
Can someone give me a straight answer as why I can't deploy to my phone before releasing to Marketplace? And if you can, how?
