  • Question

  • User139465 posted

    have created Android apps in Xamarin Studio. But for some need I have to install Visual Studio 2015 Community edition in to my system. But the problem now is whenever I am trying to run my early developed Xamarin Android program it is launching Android Player but in Xamarin Studio it is showing "Starting Nexus 5 ( KitKat )" or what ever the emulator name is and it is not moving forward .. refer to the image .

    Can any one guide me on that...???

    I am having exactly the same problem and it started in the last 2 weeks. I have had to revert to GenyMotion at the moment but would like some guidance as to whether there is something that can fix this?

    This started for me this morning after upgrading Xamarin Studio, which necessitated upgrading Android SDK. When the Android Player didn't work, I also upgraded that. However, still getting stuck on the "Starting Nexus 4 (Lollipop)..." status.

    Same issue when I downloaded the latest xamarin studio. I was onn 0.3.7 and updated to 0.4.4 and it's still broken.

    But it is unfortunate that... no Xamarin expert is helping us.... really frustrating. If you have bugs in latest build then why you people released the build..? No testing ..nothing...

    I had a similar issue until this morning when a new build (v0.5.5) became available, I installed it and everything started working again after a reboot.

    I get this with a 'starting message being shown for ever'. However in most scenarios in the drop down for the choice of the device to deploy I then get the IP address of the android device shown which you can then deploy to instead and that works.

    I have the same issue and have contacted support. I can get around the issue by selecting the IP address in the device drop down list and then deploy to it.


    [Update] The new Android player 0.5.5(1) did not fix the issue for me.

    @Ivanxxx do you stop the IDE from deploying and then try selecting the new device?

    It's no mater that i am deploying, as long as device is active the moment i open drop menu xamarin stops responding.

    Try this:

    • start player manually and launch your image you wish to deploy to
    • when it is started select from the list of devices the one in Bold text, it will be named by the IP, in ma case usually like

    Then deploy/start there. All will work and be fine.

    Tried following (while having XAP updated to the latest version):

    1) Running XAP first and running XS after which results in XS getting frozen (no matter if I start deploying or just not doing anything) 2) Running XAP after XS was run. XS getting cold like ice. 3) Running everything as usual which results in ice cold XS as well.

    This issue is being caused by an update to the Android SDK Tools (24.3.4), it changes the way adb handles characters that need to be escaped. As a workaround, if you downgrade SDK tools then it should work as it did before.
