I have two SharePoint apps that behave differently in Visual Studio 2017 when I run it on the SharePoint hosted server.
For another app, Visual Studio always uninstalls the SharePoint Add-in even if nothing changed in the app. I click 'Start', loaded the app, clicked 'Stop' and 'Start' again. Visual Studio went ahead and uninstalled the app.
I compared the Project Settings between both apps and they were the same.
Does anybody know where else I can look to find out why the apps are treated differently in Visual Studio?
Thanks in advance
Update I noticed that when I build the app that keeps getting uninstalled, I see this in the build output... ------ Build started: Project: myapp, Configuration: Debug Any CPU ------ Successfully created package at: C:\Users\Eric\Documents\code\myapp\bin\Debug\myapp.debugapp
I don't see this in the app that skips the uninstall step. Maybe this could be the issue.
