I'm using windows 7 with visual studio 2015 to develop a UWP app and trying to deploy it to a raspberry pi 3 running windows 10 IoT core. Authentication mode is set to universal authentication.

When I try to deploy the app to the pi using VS15, I get this.

Severity Code Description Project
File Line
Suppression State
Error DEP6701 : Bootstrapping failed with unexpected error: 'DEP6960 : Source file does not exist: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Phone Tools\14.0\Debugger\target\armv4i\msvsmon.exe'.
I'm new to UWP and am not familiar with Windows 10 so any help would be appreciated.

Looks like you have not downloaded the remote debugger msvsmon.

hi George Swan,
As you told I downloaded, but getting same exception.

It doesn't look like your environment is setup correctly. My first step on setting up this environment would be setting up the Raspberry Pi. ( This would allow for you boot the device and remotely connect to a web interface to manage the device. Once this is done, then you should make sure your visual studio is setup correctly. After this is complete, then it is all about deploying your app from visual studio to the remote device. Once deployed, you can set it as a default app which will start when the Pi starts.

I can say that this process does work. I followed it an when developing my first app to be a remote monitor for a security camera system. Once I created one, I was able to copy the SD card and now I have multiple security monitors.

Good Luck on your endeavors.

P.S. I am assuming that you have performed simple google searching of Error DEP6701 : Bootstrapping failed with unexpected error: 'DEP6960 :.
