I can debug with my two gingerbread phones (2.3) from Android Studio.
When I try to debug from visual Studio 2017 I receive a deploy error.
I receive the message "there were deployment errors"
I don't understand the cryptic error messages in the logger.
I have set the min sdk to 8. The target version to 2.3. The paths to SDK tools seem to be right. I have started the IDE as administrator.
I re-installed xamarin.
I hope I don't have to go back to using Java with Android Studio, as I prefer c#.
