I am currently working on a Xamarin project where I have the need to open two different solutions. The first solution was a prototype solution of an Apple Watch product we are building. The second solution is the new production solution. We decided to create a new solution and bring over assets and code that we want from the prototype. Sounds good right! Wrong!
The problem is that you cannot run multiple instances of Xamarin Studio at the same time. This makes it much harder to copy and paste code and browse existing assets. Enter Xamarin Studio Launcher v4! Just add this application to your dock and you are ready to run multiple instances of Xamarin Studio. You can download Xamarin Studio Launcher v4 here.
