Error occurred in deployment step 'Install app for SharePoint': The System Account cannot perform this action
I was trying to deploy the App with the system account I used to configure/setup my SharePoint 2013.
In SharePoint 2013, System Account cannot deploy any app into the SharePoint because of security reasons.
- Create/User another account to open the visual studio and try deploy the App
- However, Newly created account should have following permissions
- Add the new account to FARM administrator’s group in Central Administration
- Created account should be part of local server admin group
Happy SharePointing !!
