    Recent stable update brought the following issue: Xamarin Studio can't launch app asking me to do it for it:

    Is there any way to fix it?

    What happens with Xamarin? I'm really scared to install even "stable" updates as every time something goes wrong.

    @MikhailMelnik Are you using Xamarin Studio on Windows? I don't believe we support that anymore. Please ensure you are using Visual Studio:

    @MikhailMelnik

    Is this an Android Wear app or normal App? See my bug on this here:

    https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=52114

    Try the second workaround regarding uninstalling the app and runtimes/api levels.

    @JonDouglas thanks for suggestion but no luck either. And yes, it is normal app.

    Will try to cut functionality step by step to narrow down the issue once get time.

    Another weird thing is increased apk size - managed dlls (including 3rd party ones) got 30% bigger somehow.

    @JonDouglas oh, really? Yes, it was XS on Windows. Didn't know about discontinued support.

    Will mark as answer then. Although the latter issue with increased apk size happens in VS as well.
