Xamarin project tries to launch executable from wrong path


I have an empty project that was created with the Xamarin MacOS template. It builds the executable to /Users/Username/Project/Project/bin/Debug/Project.app

However, when I try to launch the project from Rider, it tries to launch:


Which doesn't exist.


Hello Robin,

Thank you for letting us know about this issue.

It seems to be a bug in Rider. I've filed an issue on youtrack: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RIDER-35094. Could you please enable the "Project Model" "Protocol" trace scenarios in the menu "Help | Trace Scenarios (LOGS)", reproduce the issue once again, collect Rider logs (Help | Compress Logs and Show ...), and share them here. Also, it would be helpful to have a csproj file.
Do not forget disabling tracing after all.


Kind regards, 



Hi Sofia, 

After creating a new project with the same template and settings, I was unable to reproduce the issue. If I run into it again I'll be sure to send the logs.
