Is there anyone have visual studio 8.1, my apps all broken with file copy operation on the latest one (8.2), now rolling back but unable to get the download link.
Anyone have it, please post, thank you!
Did you find a solution? I have the same problem
Visual Studio Community 2019 8.2 (with Mono 6) has a bug which causes app crashing due to unauthorized read/write to storage even when permissions are requested properly.
Last known working version is VS for Mac 2019 8.1 (Mono 5.18.1), but we can't find any installation file for that!!!
Here is the trick to downgrade to VS for Mac 2017 with Mono 22.214.171.124, then upgrade back to working version (8.1):
Uninstall VS for Mac 2019 using script from:https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MicrosoftDocs/visualstudio-docs/master/mac/resources/uninstall-vsmac.sh
Install VS for Mac 2017 7.8.4 (with Mono 126.96.36.199)https://my.visualstudio.com/Downloads?q=Visual Studio 2017 for Mac
Upgrade Mono to 5.18.1 from mono-project, Visual Studio channel: https://download.mono-project.com/archive/5.18.1/macos-10-universal/MonoFramework-MDK-188.8.131.52.macos10.xamarin.universal.pkg
Upgrade Visual Studio for Mac 8.1 direct link: https://dl.xamarin.com/VsMac/VisualStudioForMac-184.108.40.206.dmg
it fixes the permission issue when writing file at least, but still bunch of other issues due to version mismatching.
What a big pain when using Xamarin!
"due to unauthorized read/write to storage even when permissions are requested properly." - how is this one associated with VS? it sounds more like nuget or coding problem. can you detail it or did you even create a GitHub Issue? if not, it sounds serious, please file an issue on GitHub.
my app is generating pdf files and writing to the internal or sd card, but I dont see any crash using 8.2
