Normal threads window when breakpoint is hit
Happens in two computers. Only happens in Android project. Doesn't happen in C# desktop project.
I hit this all the time.
Regression Status : Not a Regression.
This issue also exist with stable X.Android 4.6.08007.
This bug was targeted for a past milestone, moving to the next active non-hotfix milestone.
This is still happening. Further, it doesn't even work the first time for me. I can *never* see threads in Visual Studio, even after restarting Visual Studio.
I never see threads anymore either. Same thing with loaded modules. It makes debugging threading issues VERY difficult.
Now that I'm adding async/await to my app this is really hurting.
This bug is pretty major and already 2 years old. Any chance of getting a fix for this?
I have checked this issue with the latest stable build XVS 3.11.666 and observed that this issue still exist with this build. I observed that Visual Studio threads window only work in one debug session. However restarting Visual Studio will make Threads window working again, but only for one debug session.
