There is at least one race condition that was found and hopefully fixed recently, https://github.com/xamarin/XamarinVS/commit/1c134546d90725281a51e7cd17b675be1ce3fb0b
That fix will make it out into the MTVS 1.3 release and the android 4.8 release. Hopefully this is the source of some of the random 'deactivations'. Please re-open if you have further reports after this fix goes out.
Today we have checked this issue on following builds :
VS 2010 / 2012
iOS for VS 1.3.250
Now when we create Android and iOS project in VS, then it activates license once and there is no need to reactivate when we start new instance of
VS for android and iOS project.
Hence closing this issue. Changing its status to verified.
