Did you start the emulator from MonoDevelop, or externally?
Comment 2 Marek Habersack 2011-09-20 20:37:37 UTC
The same happens on Windows XP. I started the emulator from MonoDevelop (see also bug #948 as it might be related)
Comment 3 Marek Habersack 2011-09-20 20:41:18 UTC
Note, however, that when you close the Select Device dialog box and choose the Run -> Upload to Device menu option the emulator image shows up as running.
Comment 4 Marek Habersack 2011-09-20 20:42:46 UTC
Changing importance to Normal since there's a workaround
Comment 5 Chris Schamper 2011-10-05 10:07:50 UTC
This workaround does not work for me using the trial version of Monodroid. The emulator does not show up in either Select Device menu.

This renders Visual Studio a requirement to use the trial version.

OS: Windows
Version: 6 64-bit
JDK Version: 6
Monodevelop 2.6
Comment 6 Chris Schamper 2011-10-10 16:29:09 UTC
Monodevelop 2.8 fixes this issue for me. "Start" is still greyed out, however double clicking on the instance in the list starts the debugging process.

Reported as fixed. Closing.
