I am done writing my application and I need to sign and publish to Google play store.. I am following a tutorial and it says I have to archive before signing and publishing. Now I am trying to archive my Android project in visual studio 2017 and it just stays there for hours and it doesn't complete. It just keep showing the progress bar with nothing afterwards.
My question is.. how long does it take to archive the project? And does it need internet connection to complete? Anyone with ideas should please help me out. Thanks
