Hey guys, just wondering why the "Live Inspect" button would be disabled in VS 2017?
If you are using the latest stable Xamarin (188.8.131.523, check Help -> About Microsoft Visual Studio to confirm), Android and iOS inspection is known to be broken. See https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=56232.
Help -> About Microsoft Visual Studio
A fix is targeted to go out soon with the 15.2.2 update of VS 2017.
Typically, if you see the button being disabled, you can check the log file for any interesting output. My guess is that you will see the same error as in the above bug report.
For more "normal" error conditions, the button remains enabled, and clicking on it will give you a dialog letting you know what you have to do to get Inspector to work with your project.
What version of Visual Studio are you using? Live app inspection is available for enterprise customers only
Hi, I'm using VS 2017 Enterprise. The button is there, it's simply disabled. The button doesn't even appear in VS Professional I think? (or if it does I've never noticed it)
Just want to know what could possibly cause it so I can do some troubleshooting.
EDIT: For some reason this comment is marked as the accepted answer, which it obviously isn't. Did I click something? If so, please fix this mods .
Thanks Sandy, I'll eagerly await the next update .
