SharePoint 2013 Apps - Troubleshooting Common Errors

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.
  1. Create/User another account to open the visual studio and try deploy the App
  2. 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 !!
