This exact test case may become invalidated by the Unified installer change. We will no longer launch VS as administrator after the install.
Instead, for steps 2 and 3, you can just right click VS2012 and run as administrator.
There are only a few reports of this in the wild from support, but this is the 'Looping activation' bug.
For those affected, it can be very annoying. Dominique let me know if you need any more reproduction help.
Also happens with Android
Pj I certainly do need more reproduction help. I've run as Admin and I'm not able to reproduce this error.
This commit and bump https://github.com/xamarin/XamarinVS/commit/f952c79a04fd2ddcc450f9ef3a10ddffe180d812
Should ensure the Entitlements file given "Everyone" access. Which will then stopp the looping.
PJ : Lluis found that the above fix worked on English Windows, but not Spanish Windows.
I have now put in a fix as part of this commit, bump
That works on both English and non-English Windows OSes.
Today we have verified this issue with latest build:
Win7 and Win8
Now, this issue doesn't exist. We open the VS as open as Administrative. We are successfully able to open and create project under VS. We are not seeing any trigger workflow.
Hence, Changing the status to Verified.
