    I have an AppBuilder app that I am ready to release to the public.  So, I started to test using the RELEASE build configuration (right click solution name, select Build Settings).  To my surprise, a key element in my app which worked fine in DEBUG does not work in RELEASE.  In particular, the AdMob banner ad does not show in RELEASE.

    Of course, nothing in my code has changed between DEBUG and RELEASE in particular because my code has no compilation constants related to DEBUG and RELEASE because there is no documentation describing what the build configurations do, exactly (at least none that I'm aware of).

    I have already submitted a support ticket for this but have yet to hear a response so I'm writing here in the hopes that I can get some information about RELEASE so that I can try to investigate on my own while you guys are hopefully looking at this.  For example, are there some build constants that you guys are using internally that I might unknowingly be setting/changing?

    I did a comparison of the RELEASE and DEBUG .apk's and found only these files differed:


    Of these, it looks like resources.arsc, which I believe AppBuilder compiles behind the scenes, is where the problem may lie.

    Hi Don,

    I've just replied to you in your support ticket (with ID 839078).

    As mentioned there, the issue is most likely the same as this. I hope the possible solutions in that link help.
