I don't understand why Visual Studio 2019 doesn't see any Android Device. The Start menu just stays like this and I get the standard "Please select a valid device before running the application." error when I run start (obviously).
When I run "adb -devices" from Visual Studio 2019 adb command prompt, it does list two devices (a physical one and the VS x86 emulator one). If I try the Android Device Manager from the Visual Studio 2019 menu it also works fine and displays all devices, and the button displays a Stop for devices that are started. When I do the same thing from within Visual Studio 2017 it does see the two devices and I can run start.
One thing to note is I also have Android Studio installed and originally it had its own JDK and ADK version but I changed the "Xamarin Android" configuration paths from Tools/Options and everything is green. Plus again, I did the same thing with Visual studio 2017 and it works fine.
I've completely repaired my Visual Studio 2019 setup but it still doesn't work. I have no idea what to do now? It seems it doesn't connect properly to the "thing" that enumerates device?
(I'm coming from flutter development with a horrible dev environment, so I was hoping for a better welcome from Xamarin )
