Description Mark Final 2017-06-14 19:38:10 UTC

I tried out the Xamarin Profiler (v1.54-19) on macOS this evening on my Mono command line app. The app requires both command line arguments, and the working directory to be set (as it looks for specific files in a directory structure). However, I can only find options to set the command line argument in the UI.

The profiler appears to try to run my app using /Applications/Xamarin Profiler.app/Contents/Resources as the working directory.

Am I missing something in the UI, or is setting the working directory not implemented?

I get a 404 error when following the link though. Is it a private repo on github that I can't see?

Verified on xamarin profiler version 1.5.6-16
