Today without any reason VisualStudio was not able to connect with the WP7 device. When I selected “deploy solution” I received the following error:
------ Deploy started: Project: ...Deploying D:\MyProjects2010\...Deployment of application to device failed.This operation returned because the timeout period expired.========== Build: 2 succeeded or up-to-date, 0 failed, 0 skipped ==================== Deploy: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 skipped ==========
Zune client was on.
Zune client seen the device.
Device was dev-unlocked.
Everything worked fine for weeks…
I don’t know why it happened, but I resolved doing the following steps:
- Turn off PC
- Turn off mobile
- Remove and reinsert battery from mobile
- Turn on PC
- Turn on mobile
- Visual Studio is able to connect with device again
