comment cannot connect to sharepoint 2013 from visual studio 2013 when creating an app
I just had this issue. In my case I also had been working on an app that targeted a SharePoint Online site. Then, when opened a second instance of Visual Studio and tried to create an app that targeted a local SharePoint site, I got the error that you described. I tried changing the SharePoint properties as the message described and I got the app built and deployed but it wouldn't run correctly. I guessed that the issue was the other instance of Visual Studio so I shut both instances down and tried again. This time everything worked as expected.

comment Lookup column in provider hosted app
You indicated that you have a list inside your app but you also say you are building a provider hosted app. Both of these things can't be true. Provider hosted apps live outside of SharePoint, thus they can't use SharePoint constructs like lists and fields. If you have a list inside your app then you are building a SharePoint hosted app.

comment Autohosted App Error
Does you're client know that in less than six months that App will no longer work? Microsoft is shutting down support for auto-hosted Apps altogether. Any additional time you spend working on this is wasted.
