Description Andy 2013-11-13 07:29:09 UTC
On opening project, it hangs. No message, I have to close it.

This is pretty random. Connection to Mac is fine
Comment 1 Andy 2013-11-13 07:31:34 UTC
Actually, when it starts, it keeps happening indefenitely until I reboot the mac
Comment 2 Alan McGovern 2013-11-14 14:19:23 UTC
Are you trying to run multiple visual studios instances at the same time or just use a single instance?

Also, when you experience this issue does it go away when the Xamarin.iOS Build Host is restarted on the Mac?
Comment 3 Andy 2013-11-14 14:30:11 UTC

I think it went away eventually but I couldn't swear because of that
Comment 4 Andy 2013-12-02 14:15:17 UTC
Like bug 16473, this is caused by Xamarin VS messing up a couple of my projects.
Comment 5 Andy 2014-01-06 12:30:08 UTC
I guess it's fixed, since it never happened again with recent version. 

However, now XS freezes :)

I have checked this issue with following builds:

Master Xamarin.VisualStudio_Setup-1.99.390
X.iOS 7.2.1-63

I am successfully able to open solution in Visual studio. It does not get hang.

Also I am successfully able to open iOS solution in XS as well.

4.2.4(build 266)

I am closing this issue.
