Hi,

Please do not post the same question multiple times. You already got an answer regarding your issue posted here:

If the answer you got did not help you, please communicate it in your original post. Posting the same question again does not help with faster or better response. It just makes the forum cluttered with the same/similar posts ;) Thanks.

Just uninstall the application, before instrument and deploy it.
Afterwards, the instrumentation should work again.
