Description Samiya A 2017-06-20 20:23:32 UTC
I'm trying to debug my watch app in xamarin studio as described in these docs https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/ios/watch/getting-started/installation/. I have Xcode 8.3.3 and I'm running XS version 6.3. As per the docs I should be able to set the watch app (not the extension) as startup app and run it on simulator, but this project is not letting me run it since there's no option to set it as startup.

Hello Samiya

Any particular reason why you are not running latest stable tooling (Visual Studio For Mac)?

In order to assist you please include your full build logs, test case (to reproduce) and all version information.

The easiest way to get exact version information:
- On Visual Studio for Mac: "Visual Studio" menu, "About Visual Studio" item, "Show Details" button.
- On Visual Studio for Windows: "Help menu", "About Microsoft Visual Studio" item.
Then copy/paste the version information (you can use the "Copy Information" button).

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this report! I attempted to reproduce this issue based on the bug description with the latest Xamarin.iOS, and I was unable to hit the problem. If this issue is still occurring for you, please reopen this report and attach a project that reproduces the issue, ideally starting with a new template project and then adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
