Comment 5 Greg Munn 2017-03-22 15:02:29 UTC
Can you add the logs from the Device Log too (in XS you can select View | Pads | Device Log) and then select the device. Wait until the log loads fully (on a real device you will continue to get a lot of events, so maybe do this with an emulator). Then, add a "marker" to the log, deploy, add another marker, then interact with the app to make it crash. Then select all the events and paste into a file and attach.

You can also do something similar with `adb logcat` and redirect the output from that to a file.

Given that the application was deployed, it's likely that this isn't related to XS - also, since all the deployment is done by Xamarin Android now XS has no control of what is or isn't deployed to the device.
Comment 6 Jacky Waswani 2017-03-23 07:46:15 UTC
Hello @Greg,

As suggested, I have attached the device logs. I have applied marker before deployment(marker 1) & after deployment(marker 2).

Device details: Nexus 6P OS 6.0.

Attaching the device logs.
Comment 8 Greg Munn 2017-03-23 14:38:25 UTC
can we just use a plain text file instead of a .docx file?
Comment 9 Greg Munn 2017-03-23 14:38:55 UTC
or gist.github.com

@dean, can you take a look please.
Comment 12 Kyle White 2017-03-23 14:59:55 UTC
I am able to repro and @dean asked for the diagnostic output od `msbuild /t:Install` which is here:
Comment 13 dean.ellis 2017-03-23 15:08:12 UTC
adb log output 

Comment 14 Cody Russell 2017-03-23 16:36:30 UTC
I've tried reproducing this morning and I'm unable to. Everything seems to be working here. :/
Comment 15 Cody Russell 2017-03-23 17:03:51 UTC
I think the difference was my Mono. When I was using the same versions of VSMac and Monodroid everything was fine, but I was still using Mono 4.8.0. When I switched to Mono then the app crashed.
Comment 16 Andi McClure 2017-03-23 21:19:58 UTC
I am seeing this 100% currently.
Comment 17 dean.ellis 2017-03-24 09:48:13 UTC
Should be fixed in monodroid/master/310823bc
Comment 18 Chiranjib Mukherjee 2017-03-24 10:57:56 UTC
Now i can see a different pop up coming up and it stops the application to be deployed over the Physical device and Emulator

a bit more investigation and it looks like msbuild is ignoring the DebugType property in projects. It always defaults to "portable" which breaks x-a because we only use the debug runtime when DebugType is "Full".

Checked with the latest XA and Mono version.

Working Fine, hence closing the Bug.
