    Hi everyone. I'm using Icenium for the first time. I created a jQuery mobile app and it runs well in the emulator. Now I'm ready to deploy it to my tablet. However, no matter what I do, I cannot get it deployed to my tablet. I'm using an Asus Transformer Pad TF700T Android version 4.2.1. I'm using the Visual Studio 2012 plug-in version of Icenium.

    I wanted to run it on my device, so I went to (in Visual Studio) ICENIUM -> Devices List and my tablet shows as ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T. On my tablet, I have developer mode enabled, USB debugging enabled and the device connected as a media device (MTP). Now what? The documentation doesn't explain how to actually put the app onto my tablet.

    I gave up on that approach and tried to build in the web and try the QR code approach. I went to (in Visual Studio) ICENIUM -> Build MobileProject1 in Cloud. I clicked the Build icon below the Android icon and I received the error "Parameter must not be null or empty. Parameter name: LiveSyncToken".

    What can I do to get this app onto my tablet?

    Hi Troy,

    Did you check out the Run app on connected devices from the Icenium Extension for Visual Studio article?

    Basically, once you have verified that Icenium recognizes your device in the Devices List, what you need to do is select Icenium -> Build project_name and Deploy. You need to wait for the build and deployment to complete. You can follow the progress of the operation in the Output pane in the Build log. However, you might need to wait a little while for the deployment to complete (there is no indication for it in VS) on device. 

    If this does not help, the error you are reporting might indicate some additional issues with your project. If you are still unable to build and deploy on a connected device, could you zip your project and attach it, so we can investigate what might be causing the error?

    Back when I made the prototype, the Visual Studio plug-in was very buggy. It's been upgraded several times since and is working now.
