Description John Hair 2013-04-03 07:02:03 UTC
Posting questions in the support forum isn't getting responses so raising bugs instead.

Have to be honest here, if I was the PM working on the VS integration I would never have allowed this to be released in this state. Its a great concept and what you have achieved is fantastic, its just *not finished*.

No device detected often appears in the device combobox. No apparent way to force it to refresh. Trying to run results in the Detecting mac host dialog. If it succeeds the compile often fails with ERROR: Another instance is running

ERROR: Another instance is running
This has to be the most annoying messages. I only have 1 instance running (me!)

I would be happy to allow a dev to remote in to see all the issues. Im available on Skype (john-hair) to discuss.
