I have a installation of Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition with Xamarin. I just created a new PCL Project and wanted to debug the application. But to my surprise, when I debug the Xamarin Android Project,my breakpoints don't hit at all.
I compared it with my another installation at my office place where the debugger does work. In this installation, once the build and deploy succeeds, the debugger is attached. I say this because the ribbon control at top to start the android emulator is grayed out.
But in the problematic installation, its not grayed out. It shows build and deployed succeeded in the Output windows. Then , in the status bar it shows Start Debugging Android Application, followed by Debugging Android Application. Then the debugger doesn't attach (as the ribbon control is enabled at the end)
Note: I have selected the Xamarin Debugger in the Android projects Debugging options.
