  • I have connected an external device to my machine. When I am trying to run my Xamarin.Android application on this external device, it is giving me an error unable to retrieve properties for device. This device will not be available. See exceptions for more details.

    What do you get if you run the following command: "ADB devices"

    From the Tools|Android|ADB Command Prompt.

    Does ADB return a list of device IDs?

    If not, try closing VS and un-plug and re-plug the device in.

    If you still don't see the device, do you see the device listed in Windows Device Manager? Do you have the Google USB driver downloaded?

  • Yes the command ADB devices is returning the list of devices with their IDs. The device is also available in the Windows Device Manager. But in the Windows Device Manager it is showing the device name with yellow warning icon. So there might be problem with the device.
