Description Mike Bluestein 2014-10-15 10:11:22 UTC
It works OK on my MacBook Air running Mavericks but crashes on startup on my MBP running Yosemite.

This is in the log:

10/15/14 10:06:21.453 AM com.apple.xpc.launchd[1]: (com.xamarin.XamarinAndroidPlayer.307320[1412]) Service exited with abnormal code: 1

Let me know if there's any other log info I can capture to help you diagnose this.

I installed Virtual Box manually and then ran the Android Player install and I can run it now.

This is fixed in update 0.2.5. Issue was related to a VirtualBox bug on OSX where kext modules are sometimes not properly loaded. XAP now detects if this is the case and reloads the kext modules.
