    Xamarin Studio is LONG PAST end of life. Its a dead product.
    You should have changed over to Visual Studios a couple years ago.

    But... Its clearly time that you move to Visual Studio now.

    You can get Visual Studio 15.9.6 here: https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads/
    There are three types you can choose. Download the Visual Studio Installer firstly, then choose what components you need. At last, the Installer will download the whole Visual Studio for you.
    If you have other issues about Xamarin, feel free to post threads here.

    I would recommend starting a new thread describing in detail what is happening when you are deploying your app to an emulator. Some things have changed with the Google Android emulator for Windows fairly recently, and Visual Studio Android emulator is no longer supported. So when posting the new thread, please do specify which Android emulator you are using.

    I am going to close this thread since it is about an unsupported product.
