Description tej mannava 2012-09-18 18:51:24 UTC

After installing the new update for Monodevelop when I try to debug my Android application using Monodevelop/VisualStudio it is uninstalling the application completely from the device and re-installing it again.
As a result it is taking a longtime for debugging especially if the application has a sqllite database.

I am not sure if this is a bug in the new update or if it is done intentionally.
If it is not a bug are there any configuration settings that will allow us to only update the application but not remove it completely from the device while debugging.

What version of Mono for Android do you have? What Android version is your device running?
Comment 2 tej mannava 2012-09-20 16:19:16 UTC
Mono for Android version 4.2.5.
Android version 3.2
