Further to my last question where VS2019 failed to deploy my Xamarin Forms app to the Android emulator due to 'lack of space', I increased the 'memory' in the emulator settings and tried again. This time the emulator just 'hung' during the deployment process.
I tried switching between VS2017 and VS2019 and found that when I try to debug my app for the first time from either VS2017 or VS2019 the emulator does a 'Cold Boot'. When it does a 'Cold Boot' my app is successfully deployed and run in the emulator. However, on all succeeding debug attempts with the same version of VS the emulator doesn't do a 'Cold Boot' but 'restores state' from, I presume, the previous session. After it does this the emulator just hangs. There is, apparently, no way to force the emulator to do a 'Cold Boot' each time it runs other than switching between VS2017 and VS2019. I also tried uninstalling the app from the emulator before finishing the debugging session but this made no difference to succeeding debug attempts - the emulator still just hung. This situation, for me at least, makes Xamarin development virtually unusable.
Is anyone else experiencing the same or similar problems.
Any help/advice would be gratefully received.
