After opening an apk it immediately crashes, log attached. Windows 8.1 x64 and supposedly profiler v0.10 (albeit there is no version on UI and .exe is labeled as 0.9; but it is the latest download).

Hi guys,

Xamarin Profiler 0.10 does not support .apk profiling right now. So, the bug here is that Xamarin Profiler (Window version) shouldn't allow the user to choose a .apk file..
Comment 3 Miha Markic 2015-02-03 12:42:08 UTC
So you are saying that it doesn't support Android at all? Or?
Comment 4 Rodrigo Moya 2015-02-03 12:46:46 UTC
We do support Android profiling, but via XS/VS (which build and deploy the application to the device/emulator), not by selecting an .apk
Comment 5 Miha Markic 2015-02-04 03:57:12 UTC
OK. How exactly can I profile apk then from within VS? Somehow I can't find an entry in menu.
Comment 6 Rodrigo Moya 2015-02-04 04:17:49 UTC
With an Android app solution opened in VS, go to Analyze->Xamarin Profiler. That will build and deploy the application to the device/emulator you choose and then start the profiler
