Visual Studio 2015 Preview Android error

Visual Studio 2015 Preview Android error.

So I’ve been playing with Visual Studio 2015 because I was curious about the new Android emulator running in Hyper-V. I paired it up with Xamarin and tried to test out a few apps. The only problem is the apps wouldn’t launch nor would they run in the debugger. I was getting a Mono.Debugger.Soft.ConnectionException message.

Scenario 1

Using my google-fu I found this post on the Xamarin forums suggesting to turn off fast deployment.

This can be done by right clicking the Android startup project > Properties > Android Options > Uncheck Use Fast Deploy
