screenshot of error screen which cannot be closed.

My Explorer.exe restarted itself (for unrelated reasons) and the error below was thrown, which is fine and expected behaviour.  However, I cannot get rid of this error.  Clicking the X or OK just brings it back up, as does clicking on either of the links.  I have had to close Visual Studio in the Task Manager in order to get rid of it.

I wish I had a way to turn this popup off permanently.  Unlike the OP, I can close it.  But it re-appears most of the time when I hit the "stop" button in VS to stop my current debugging session.

I am unable to reproduce this Issue with Xamarin 3.9.236. 

@Vicky, Are you still getting this Issue with latest build?
Comment 3 Rajneesh Kumar 2015-07-23 14:52:18 UTC
I have checked this issue with the latest stable build XVS 3.11.666 and observed that I am also not able to reproduce this. 

Could you please check this issue with the latest stable build XVS 3.11.666 and let us know its working for you OR you are till getting same behaviour ?

There is no response from the reporter. So as of now I am closing this issue against stable build XVS 3.11.666. Please feel free to reopen this issue if you again facing this behavior at your end.

Hence I am closing this issue.
