Trying to compile 1st Android app RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a new project called android1 using Cross Platform, Basic Application, (Android Ant). It's a simple "Hello World app. I am running on a win 10 pro system using the Community edition of the Studio. I am having trouble getting it to compile to a connected ZTE phone (or to an android simulator). 

    The start button says "Android_accelerated_x86_Nougat (offline). When I click it  I get a message saying "Waiting for Emulator" and it just stays there. 

    What needs to change to be able to compile and debug this?

  • Hi PickyBiker,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Refer to your description, it seems your issue is more relates to the Cross-Platform development. Since our forum is to discuss the VS Installation issues, please redirect to this appropriate forum: https://forums.xamarin.com/ to seek for a better support, thank you for your understanding.

    Meanwhile, as far as I know it will very slow to run the x86 emulator except opening the Quick boot in the canary channel. Please have a look at this similar issue and try to install the Visual Studio Emulator for Android or disable Hyper-V to check this doc. Hope those information will useful for your issue and for more detail information, you can go to the above Xamarin forum to get a more professional support.

    Best regards,
