Fixing SharePoint 2013: Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site

December 7, 2013

I am using Visual Studio 2012 to develop SharePoint Apps for my on-premise SharePoint 2013 environment. I wanted to set up a simple dev environment for one of my host-header site collections, but when I tried to deploy my SharePoint App I got the error:

Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site

The feature required to enable sideloading is as follows:

DisplayName: EnableAppSideLoading

Id: ae3a1339-61f5-4f8f-81a7-abd2da956a7d

CompatibilityLevel: 15

To enable sideloading, use the following PowerShell commands:

$site = Get-SPSite ""

$sideLoadingId = new-object System.Guid "ae3a1339-61f5-4f8f-81a7-abd2da956a7d"
