Debugging UWP Application


As of 2018.3, I can open our Xamarin application which targets iOS, Android, and UWP. I can run and debug the Android version and I can run the UWP version, but the Debug command is disabled for UWP. Is this a project/build configuration problem on my end or an inability for Rider to debug UWP apps? Just wanted to know before I dug deeper into my project configurations (this is a solution that I can build and debug in Visual Studio 2017).


Chris Palmer,

Unfortunately, Rider 2018.3 doesn't support debugging UWP apps, but we have plans to implement it. Please watch this feature request for updates:


Thank you. I'm liking the 2018.3 features - maybe when UWP debugging is available, our team can utilize it more.
