I'm currently beginning app development using Xamarin with Visual studio in a virtual machine (My actual PC doesn't support android Emulation but the server next door does).
Whenever I have the virtual android device (using Visual Studio Emulator for Android) open and am using or debugging apps I get a black screen for some unknown reason, I can stop this behaviour by clicking where the home back and app manager buttons would be and this returns me to the app.
After reading other questions and responses online I don't believe my issue is similar, many have issues with flat out black screens with no interactivity, whereas my issue is different.
Virtual Machine I am developing in:
- Intel xeon E5 2630 v4 2.2Ghz
- 12 GB dedicated to my machine
- 5" KitKat (4.4) XXHDPI Phone
- API Level 19
If anybody knows what could be the cause of this issue and perhaps a solution, it would be greatly appreciate.d
