When opening a monodroid project in visual studio it crashes instantly and leaves this nice message in logs. In monodevelop it crashes once i try to open a .axml file.

Does this happen for all solutions you try to open? Does it happen when you create or open a new solution created from scratch?

If you are running MonoDevelop 3.0 on windows, can you please attach the last log file you'll find in the following directory? thanks:

Sorry, another request: which java version do you have? (try running "java -version" in a console)
Comment 4 zaller 2012-05-14 15:25:42 UTC
It dose it on creating a brand new monodroid application as well as opening old ones.

However i seemed to have fixed the issue (thanks for the java -version) what ended up happening was that i had set my path to java to a jre run time then what probably happened is i guess the sdk got installed when i installed monodroid but the path was never set to the jdk or something and so when i typed java -version i got could not read jvm.cfg just switching my path to the jdk fixed it.

now i am getting mono.debugging.soft.DisconnectedException which is probably unrelated.
