Inspector logfile.

Xamarin Inspector crashes when I click on "Show the View Inspector" on Android.
No error message is shown when this happens.

I'm not able to reproduce this. A few questions:

1) Are you able to reproduce it with a clean Xamarin.Forms Android project, using the templates?
2) Are you using a PCL or shared projects Xamarin.Forms project?
3) Do you have a native stack trace that shows up anywhere after the Inspector crashes that you could also attach? The window might be hidden (OS X doesn't always do a good job of bringing it to the front), so try hitting the Expose view and seeing if it's there.

I tried to change from Android Player to Google Android Emulator.
Now I cant start the Inspector from Xamarin Studio at all.
With error "Xamarin Inspector is disabled for an unknown reason".

You can look after this in the logs also. I changed the emulator some time after 12:23 Norwegian time, that is 11:23 UTC.
