Differences between Application Deployment app and WPPT?

Apr 11, 2014 at 4:50 PM
My company has recently run into an issue where our app crashes when it is deployed to WP8 devices using the Application Deployment app, but works fine when installed using Windows Phone Power Tools.

The source of the crash has been difficult to track down. I am wondering if anyone can speculate as to the reason it works with WPPT. Obviously it will not be likely that you can tell me why my app is crashing, but perhaps you might have some insight into what WPPT does when it installs an app that AD does not do.

When using AD, I do manually uninstall my app before installing a new version.
