Comment 1 David Karlaš 2015-11-18 13:14:40 UTC

can you try this?
-Close XamarinStudio.
-Instal http://download.xamarin.com/studio/Windows/XamarinStudio-
-Start XamarinStudio and try to reproduce.

If you can still reproduce problem can you do same with http://download.xamarin.com/XamarinforVisualStudio/Windows/Xamarin.VisualStudio_3.11.1594.msi

I would like to determine which side is problem here XS or Android SDK.

Can you also attach Ide.log? https://kb.xamarin.com/customer/portal/articles/1675684-where-can-i-find-my-version-information-and-logs-

Thank you,

Comment 4 Dario 2015-11-18 14:02:55 UTC
Same problem. In fact, now I'm not even getting a "debugger disconnected" message box. The app just dies and the debugger disconnects
Comment 5 David Karlaš 2015-11-18 14:10:10 UTC
1) What Android simulator/emulator are you using?

2) Can you please attach log files?

3) Can you try with device or maybe Google Android Emulator?
Comment 6 Dario 2015-11-18 17:23:09 UTC
Seems like it might be related to my device. I seem to most consistently be able to reproduce the problem when I'm connected to my Nexus 6P which is running Marshmallow. I'll try and get you some logs. Which logs specifically were you looking for?
Comment 7 Peter Collins 2015-11-18 23:47:17 UTC
@Dario adb logcat would be useful for this failure scenario.

Out of curiosity, are you using the shared runtime for your debug builds? Does your apk include support for arm64-v8a? We're looking at an issue that's possibly related in Bug #35798, but from what I've seen it's only reproducible when the app _only_ supports armeabi-v7a.

I'll mark this as a duplicate of that issue, please provide any additional information on Bug #35798.
