Description Ash 2013-04-16 21:38:42 UTC
When I try to debug my app in VS 2010, it fails to launch.  In the output window, I see the message:
Couldn't connect to logcat, GetProcessId returned: 0

I can debug in Xamarin Studio though.

When I create a new Android app in Visual Studio, I'm able to debug OK.

When I launch my old Android app in Release mode, I'm able to debug OK.

When I uncheck the "Use Fast Deployment (debug mode only)" option, I'm able to debug my old Android app in Debug mode.

I have the same issue in Visual Studio.  I cannot debug any application under any circumstance. The message: "Couldn't connect to logcat, GetProcessId returned: 0" is always displayed in the debug output window.
