Description Maxim 2013-04-13 03:18:33 UTC
My colleagues told me that they have updated to new versions of XS and MonoTouch.

Yet I couldn't update. Message "Error retrieving update information" appeared.

This may be an error with your license. Please contact support@xamarin.com.
Comment 2 Maxim 2013-04-14 04:33:05 UTC
If so, I suggest two ideas:
- In XS's update window write more descriptive error reason;
- In store.xamarin.com -> computers write computers names instead of "Mac Workstation". Thus, it's simple to understand if I should deactive license on old Mac or so.

I'd mail to support.

This is now fixed.

I think you meant to mark this as fixed, Michael.
