Comment 1 Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2013-11-15 15:21:22 UTC
No matter what I select in the drop down that includes “iPhoneSimulator”, the device drop down reads “No Devices Attached”.

When I attempt to run I get the following error: 
[screen shot of dialog saying "The debugger can not continue running the process. Unable to start debugging."]

If I select “iPhone”, Visual Studio populates the device list with the name of the phone that is connected to my Mac but I get the same error when I select Start though.
