Xamarin Forms App. Unable to run, no errors, no exceptions. Multidex ?

I recently enabled multidex on the application. Since enabling this feature I am unable to run the application on the emulator or on my physical device. The application just quits. There is no error in output. When I manually run I get an error popup that tells me that it failed to run.

How can I debug this ?

    Does it work without multidex (or does your app need it)?

    And Android SDK is rubbish - it ships with an older version of pro guard that breaks multidex (yup multidex needs pro guard for some reason) for SDK 25 builds, so if your using the latest build tools/platform tools/SDK etc. then you will need to download the latest version of Proguard and drop it in over the top of the one that comes with the Android SDK.

    @NicholasVentimiglia could you provide the adb logcat logs?
