Cannot run Emulator through visual studio with basic project
I am having an issue with building the project and running on android emulator.
The project doesn't even build (it's a brand new project, i havnt touched the code)
"There were deployment errors. Continue?" is the option i have.
So I havnt been able to see anything on the emulator at all. Just a black screen

It sounds that if it fails to deploy, you will never see the installed app on the emulator. I found this on stackoverflow, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/40694554/getting-there-were-deployment-errors-continue-error-in-visual-studio-2015-xa
I initially had an error after installing all xamarin dependencies in VS 2017 related to API 25 not being installed on my system, and that the project was targeting API 25. I simply downloaded the tools for 25 through the Android SDK manager, and it worked.
