VS2010 folders that were created during installation

I have a Windows 8 Pro machine with (only) VS2012 installed & I downloaded and installed the current version of Xamarion.iOS for Windows (1.1 as of writing) on that machine.

After installation went through, the directories shown in the attached screenshot appeared on my main C:\ drive/directory and they contained (only) files named iOS*/Monotouch-something.

This machine is brand-new and never had an earlier version of VS2010 and also Xamari.iOS installed, but I'd expect that the installer would not create such folders for machines that do not have VS2010 installed.

Let me know if you need any more information.

Thanks for reporting this issue. It is already fixed in our code and the fix will be part of the next (1.2.x) release of Xamarin.iOS for VS. Please reopen the bug if the issue persists after updating to 1.2.x, thanks!
