Requirements for Debugging on Device

Debugging on device is an experimental feature. You can debug on device from the classic Windows desktop client, the extension for Visual Studio or the command-line interface.

In the Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and later, you can debug on device using the AppBuilder debug tools or the built-in Microsoft Visual Studio debugger. For earlier versions of Microsoft Visual Studio, you can debug on device only using the AppBuilder debug tools.

To debug your application on device, verify that you meet the following requirements.

General Requirements

  • An Internet connection for debugging on Android.
  • Verify that you are running the classic Windows desktop client, the extension for Visual Studio or the command-line interface.
  • If you want to debug on device using the Microsoft Visual Studio built-in debugger, verify that you are running the extension for Visual Studio on Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 or later.
  • If you want to debug your TypeScript sources on device instead of the transpiled JavaScript files, verify that you meet the following requirements:
    • You are running the extension for Visual Studio on Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 or later.
    • In tsconfig.json file for your project, the sourceMap property is set to true.
    • Automatic transpilation is enabled.

Android Requirements

Android Device Requirements

  • To debug with the Microsoft Visual Studio built-in debugger, verify that your device is running Android 4.4 or a later 4.x version or Android 5.0.
  • Verify that your device is running Android 4.2 or later.
  • Verify that you have connected the physical or virtual device to your system and AppBuilder recognizes it.
    For more information, see Connect Android Device.
