No android devices come up on the debug simulator in Xamarin Studio

OsianOsian GBMember

Hello all,
I have just started looking at creating a cross platform app and when I create an iOS and Android cross platform I can only see iOS simulators in the selection section. But as soon as I just create a android app I can see all my android simulators.

How would I get my android simulators to show up on cross development?
Thank you

    I am also experiencing this problem. The devices show up if I choose an Android only solution, but if I choose a cross-platform solution there are only ios simulators present.

    So, apparently, you must right-click on the Android project and choose "Set as Startup Project".

    You will then only see android emulators and wonder where the ios ones went...

    Yes, that was the problem... Very easy to forget that..
