Lately I had a huge problem with Xamarin iOS.
First step, Visual studio crashed when stopping debug on a breakpoint during the execution of the app (simulator).
Now Visual Studio crash everytime I try to debug.
I tried to reboot (Mac / PC), restart VS, clean (or delete files on the PC), restart the build host, re-pair the build host, etc.
Nothing seems to work.
I had the problem yesterday, and suddenly it worked again, I can't tell what changed. If I remember well the first step was the same (crash when stopping debug on a breakpoint).
The build host only says « Error: Failed to send response to Visual Studio » and « Exception: Exception type: System.IO.IOException Write Failure (…) »
On the event log of windows, I have a lot of errors, two are worth noticing.
First is an Error on devenv.exe, ArgumentOutOfRangeException.
Second is an Error, precisely a CommunicationException / IOException / CommunicationException / PipeException (communication pipe was closed if I translate it)
This is crucial and already cost me nearly twice half a journey. Please, Xamarin, help me because this is currently blocking all my devs on iOS. This is a huge stability problem…
Don't hesitate to contact me to test things up.
