After making a few changes I am getting an error
Session ‘app’: Error Installing APKs
According to some it is because of Instant Run.
On the latest Stable Android Studio 3.0, under Build, Execution, Deployment I don’t have any option for Instant Run, even checked in the settings search. Any clue where I might be able to disable it?
Update 1: Tried reinstalling. No change.
Build number 171.4408382
Update 2: Gave reset a shot https://stackoverflow.com/a/19397632/1926621 still nothing.
Update 3: Not a duplicate. Must be something in the settings. A complete clean install/reset did it.
Android Studio Settings or Preferences (for MAC) ->
Then deselect the “Enable Instant Run” checkbox at the top.
For Mac go to Help in MenuBar and type ‘preferences’
go to ‘Android Studio -> Preferences’ in MenuBar
Instant Run is not a feature of Android Studio 3.5 (and later) any more and so cannot be disabled.
In case you find an old guide recommending to disable it, you can ignore this instruction.
See here 1 and here 2.
Just make sure you go to Android Studio -> Preferences instead of File -> Other settings -> default settings.
Instant run should be there.
As other users on Linux and such saw the Instant Run option in the settings, I tried reinstalling and resetting the installation, following https://stackoverflow.com/a/19397632/1926621
Removed all old settings, and installation of Android Studio( kept the SDK files). Changed the path. Opened the same project, and the options were now there!
Easiest/Laziest option for For mac would be CMD+SHIFT+A Search for instant run, click on relevant suggestion and uncheck the checkbox
