In the version: Xamarin.Android 5.1.4, Cycle 5 – Service Release 2
I regularly get the error between deploys of Android to a real device:
Error 29 Unable to copy file "<myproject>\bin\Debug\xx.dll.mdb" to "bin\Debug\xxx.dll.mdb". The process cannot access the file 'bin\Debug\xxx.dll.mdb' because it is being used by another process.
I have to kill everything / reboot to be able to redebug
I have checked this issue and unable to reproduce the reported behavior given in the bug description. Android project deploy successfully on device.
Please let me know if I missed any step.
It would be great If you provide Ide Logs,Environment Info,Build Output,Screencast and sample project to reproduce the given behavior.
