I'm trying to build an Android phone app that I've build before, now using Xamarin on VS 2019. Build becomes unbearably long. Here's an example I timed out using a stopwatch. Total time required to have the debug fail: Almost 30 minutes! Something is terribly wrong. Xamarin is no longer useable. Any suggestions (other than rehashing all those already posted) greatly appreciated. Thanks.
To Rebuild the code:
2:20 - build Release
5:40 - build Debug
4:00 - waiting for runtime check to complete
4:17 - remove old runtime
- installing shared runtime
- target device arm65-v8a
5:15 - installing the mono share rurntime (debug - ########)...
12:20 - Installing Platform Framework
13:00 - Installing the API 28 platform frame
13:40 - lot's of stuff
14:00 - detecting installed packages
14:30 - Copy application to device
16:45 - 100 % 2038k of 2038kb copied
25:35 - Getting installation path...
27:50 - Using fast dev path
28:00 - Couldn't connect debug
