    I already added you on and you should have received an email from test flight, perhaps check your junk mail on the email you entered on: https://xamarinhq.wufoo.com/forms/live-player-alpha-program-agreement/

    Hi James, thanks for the opportunity to help test this.
    I got the TestFlight email, installed the app on my iphone, redeemed the code, so that is done.

    In VS2017 CE (d/l & setup yesterday).
    I have latest Xam Updater; I installed it and ran all updates.

    After doing all the setup steps, I still have no way to "turn on" Live Player in VS2017, so am unable to move past that initial step in the TestFlight wizard. ["other" selection not in Options-->Xamarin]

    Am I missing something, or is the current build disabled for dvmt....

    thanks!

    I just realized I installed the latest stable CE version, not from the preview page.
    Disregard my post for now, thanks much.

    Any luck with VS 2017 15.4?

    I have been trying the whole day, but all I get is this errors:

    he following errors were encountered when building and running
    your app:
    • MainActivity.cs: The type 'ContextCompat' exists in both
    'Xamarin.Android.Support.Compat, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,
    PublicKeyToken=null' and 'Xamarin.Android.Support.v4,
    Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'
    • PushHandlerService.cs: 'Resource.Drawable' does not contain a
    definition for 'icon'
    • PushHandlerService.cs: Argument 2: cannot convert from 'string' to
    'Java. Lang.lCharSequence'
    • PushHandlerService.cs: 'Resource.Drawable' does not contain a
    definition for 'icon'
    • PushHandlerService.cs: Argument 2: cannot convert from 'string' to
    'Java. Lang.lCharSequence'

    I found where they were happening and commented all the code that triggers them (Code was needed, but not critical for the app to run).

    Now when I run they don't happen, the phone shows a little notification in the bottom which says:
    "Virtualisation error
    Cannot find a default constructor for 'XamarinAp...' "

    The Phone I am using is a Samsung S7 Edge with Android 7.0.

    Any ideas?
