Visual studio 2013 often hangs while debugging on an android device.
VS becomes unresponsive and every couple of minutes a baloon poppes up with:
|Microsoft Visual studio is Busy
|Microsoft Visual Studio is waiting for an internal
|operation to complete. If you regularly encounter this
|delay during normal usage, please report this problem to
Of course this only happens when using xamarin so I contact file this bugreport here.
To continue working I have to close VS in taskmanager and restart VS.
I know this is not a lot of information but if you tell me if there are some log files created and where i can find those I can upload these as well.
Could you please provide your xamarin builds info via->help->About VS->Copy info and ide logs via VS->help->Xamarin->Zip xamarin logs ?
Also provide your android device info.
In order to debug VS hangs we would need a dump with full heap, can you please provide that?
Thanks for filing this bug @Joris!

Until that time, marking this as RESOLVED-INVALID.
