studio/server community 6.1.2 error UUID not found during project RUN

my community server works properly. i can log in. i can import apps. i can start apps and view forms. etc.
below is the error message i get when trying to RUN a project from studio. i can manually export the BAR file and add the APP as administrator and it works. i can click PORTAL from the studio and get logged in to server.

studio is running on my laptop(64 bit win 8) and the server/web site is on another server(win server 2003 32 bit)

any ideas? thanks
