Can't access breakpoints

GuyProvostGuyProvost CAMember ✭✭✭

Just updated the latest Mono runtime and now can't access breakpoints. The project is in debug but I see empty red circles instead of full red circles. Deploy the app using mono 5.0.1.1 and 4.8.0.... Same thing with both.

I have the same problem with Xamarin Studio (latest) and VS 2017 for mac (updated)

Any ideas ?

    I ended up reinstalling VS 2017 and environment and restart... I can access the breakpoints. Now the problem is that I have legacy code that seems to rely on older mono runtime (since VS 2017 only install 5.0). Now that older code dont even compile!

    To anyone interested, on a new installation, you'll only get the current Mono runtime.

    So if like I you depend on older stuff, like a dated XF which wont run on mono 5.X, just install the mono runtime 4.8.0 and select it on the project menu.

    I had simular problems with the latest xamarin ios build (10.10) week ago. I had downgraded to ios 10.8

    Try to change Linker Options in iOS proj properties. Try to set "Don't link".
    Another options is to set false in proj build configuration.
