Description Y 2014-02-13 06:02:02 UTC
I created Wp8 app solution using VS 2012. It contaings main app (wp8 project) and shared core - PCL project. Then via latest version Xamarin Studio created new stub Xamarin.Android project.

Now this solution couldn't be opened in VS because of endless reloading of created Xamarin.Android project. On starting VS it opens activation window which can't be filled because of inactivity or freeze as cant be closed.

Environment : VS 2012, Win 8, latest stable Xamarin Android and Xamarin Studio with expired (dont remember installation date) Xamarin.Anrdoid VS plugin
