When deploying a SharePoint App, the deployment is stuck. Visual Studio build output shows:

Install app for SharePoint:
Uploading the app for SharePoint...
Installation is in progress (00:00:00)
Installation is in progress (00:00:01)
Installation is in progress (00:00:02)
Installation is in progress (00:00:03)
Installation is in progress (00:00:04)
Installation is in progress (00:00:05)
[...]

and a new message “Installation is in progress” is appended once per second, forever, as if the deployment was stuck in an infinite loop. I waited for fifteen minutes; the situation haven't changed.

There is no errors in the logs, neither on development machine, nor on the server hosting SharePoint.

What should I do to make the deployment work?

The solution was found on MSDN forums:

Run services.msc and start the following services:

  • SharePoint Administration
  • SharePoint Timer Service

Then, in IIS Manager, restart SharePoint applications.

If the startup type is set to Manual, change it to Automatic to avoid the error in the future.

Had same problem on SharePoint Server 2013 SP1(​15.0.4797.1000) and VS 2015. Services and accounts were Ok.

It's a bug. Installing October CU(15.0.4867.1000) helped
