Troubleshooting Xamarin Workbooks
Let us know how you feel about this
Workbooks Won't Load
Workbook app doesn't load in emulator
Make sure you are using the Google Android Emulator, Visual Studio Android Emulator, or Xamarin Android Player, and have an Android 4.4 (or newer) device set up in that emulator.
Other Android emulators are not supported at this time.
Workbook window spins forever, never loads (Windows)
First, check that your emulator has fully-working network access by testing any website in the emulator's web browser.
Visual Studio Android Emulator cannot connect to internet
If your emulator does not have network access, you may need to follow these steps to fix your Hyper-V network switch. If you switch between Wi-Fi networks frequently you may need to repeat this periodically:
- Make sure any critical network operations are complete, as this may temporarily disconnect Windows from the internet.
- Close emulators.
Virtual Switch Manager....
- Delete all virtual switches.
- Launch VS Android Emulator. You will probably be prompted to recreate virtual network switch.
- Test that VS Android Emulator's browser can access the internet.
