I've updated Xamarin for VS2015 to the latest stable ( and I'm getting the error attached.

I'm using is the generic emulators that comes with Android SDK.

Anyone else have this?

    Earlier I had same problem. I installed VisualStudio Emulator for Android and it's running good.
    Found VSEmulator is far better then the emulators come with SDK.

    OK I just installed VSEmulator and tried. I started an emulator manually. The VS debugger just can't connect to it. It can't even install the app to the emulator. VS seem to be running but nothing happens.

    Should I re-install the mono debugger?

    OK it didn't help.

    I think the hanging VS with the emulator (VS just sits there during deployment of the apk to the emulator, but nothing actually happens) is another issue - I've had that for weeks if not months.

    Solved. visual studio 2015.

    1. Copy Mono.Posix.dll into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Xamarin\Xamarin

    2. Open Mono.Posix.dll properties and mark the checkbox "Unblock" in "General" tab. Then click "Apply" and "OK".

    3. change deven.exe.config

    path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\deven.exe.config
    add this property

    1. close and Reopen Visual Studio.
