Description Ian 2012-03-06 17:41:50 UTC
Using MonoDroid 4.0.6 and MonoDevelop on a Mac.

I installed MonoDroid fresh and let it install the Android ADK and build the AVDs. MonoDroid 4.0.6 on a Mac with MonoDevelop

When we run a sample project it asks to select a Device to run on in the emulator, but even though they are running, nothing appears in the list to select, even starting a new emulator doesn't connect. Running adb kill-server and adb start-server has no effect usually. If you do this 10 times, you might get it to connect once.

Once connected it can't install the platform frame work even if we start the emulator with a -partition-size of 512. We verified that the AVD matched the minSDkVersion

Here's the error:

Installing the platform framework
1539 KB/s (16530851 bytes in 10.486s)
	pkg: /data/local/tmp/Mono.Android.Platform.apk

Failed to install the platform framework

We use MonoTouch with our corp customers and it's solid, but at this time we can't recommend MonoDroid to our customers, it's just too unstable for production work.

I'm sorry you've been having trouble getting the emulators to show up in the Device selection list. This is a know issue and we're looking into it.

Have you verified the Build Target of your Project meets the API level of the emulator you are using? That error message seems to suggest this might be the issue.

To check the API level you are building against open the Project properties menu in MonoDevelop and under the 'Build->General' menu check the Target Framework you are building against.

I came from an Java Android background and only changed the Manifest file. I didn't realize the References also need to match. Matching them both works.

Marking this as resolved.
