Description Michael 2015-10-24 22:17:05 UTC
That's pretty much it.  I've created a console application.  If I set it *not* to use an external console, it runs just fine when I hit "debug" (except I can't enter console input).  If I set it to use an external console, the terminal pops open, and then nothing happens.

1. Could you please copy details about your installation via "Xamarin Studio"->"About Xamarin Studio"->"Show Details"->"Copy Information"?
2. If you do "Console.WriteLine("something");" as first command of Main method is this printed in external Terminal window?
3. Can you please also attach Ide.log file that you can find in "Help"->"Open Log Directory" folder?

Thank you
