That is happening to me too.

It started when I upgraded to 4.7.04014 (Beta?).

I used Process Monitor to see if I was missing a file or something obvious... and I noticed a lot of "BUFFER OVERFLOW" when executing JAVA:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_39\bin\java.exe" -Djava.awt.headless=true -jar "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Xamarin\Xamarin.Android\4.7.04014\java\AndroidDesigner.jar" 1905 False


FYI... In Xamarin Studio the Android Designer works fine.
