    Well this is all I have in Visual C# I even tried to modify the install to get the android and cross-platform etc, but I did not get them and only lost space from ssd. Useless tutorial for me.. The hard part here is the super weird installation of visual studio. It does not make sense at all.

    I did everything as shown in the Video / the Tutorial, but it doesnt open the app on the debug device from Visual Studio. All im left with is a virtual android device with no custom app.

    What is required to try the app on the virtual android device in visual studio?

    If you don't mind could you please make a tutorial on how to install Visual Studio. I've been having problems making apps, because other programmers don't show what you have to install from the VS installer and this makes life harder. I'd really appreciate it if you made a video that would just make creating apps easier. Thank you in advance.

    I created a new shared project with dot net 2.0. Immediately it wont compile. About 75 errors. Got it down to 3 errors. Cant get rid of them. Awesome when you load up their own project and it breaks. This happens almost everytime with Xamarin for me.
