2. Got to Project Option Select iOS IPA Option and check "Build ad-hoc/enterprise package(IPA)"
3. Build or run the project.
4. Click On 'Show IPA File in Finder' form VS.

Actual Result: IPA file not created on mac server. In Mac Server log we are getting .ipa no found.

What configuration did you enable the "Build ad-hoc/enterprise package (IPA)" for?

I am unable to reproduce this when selecting "Configuration: Ad-Hoc", and "Platform: iPhone" and then changing my build to Ad-Hoc and deploying to a physical device.

Today we have checked this issue again with the same build and we are successfully able to open IPA file on Mac Server after clicking on 'Show IPA File in Finder' from VS.

All Windows
VS 2012/2010
MTVS 1.2.121
Xamarin.iOS 6.3.6-76

Hence closing this issue.
