Description Brendan Zagaeski (Xamarin Team, assistant) 2013-08-20 18:31:05 UTC
A user whose Xamarin.iOS subscription is due for renewal in about one month is already seeing the "Renewal required to receive updates. Click to renew." text in the updater window.

I'm the user in question.  More background about it.

- the iOS subscription had been due for renewal at the beginning of August, but the Android subscription wasn't due for another 90 days at that time.
- In the Manage Subscriptions page of my account in the Xamarin Store, it balanced out the subscriptions, taking 45 days away from the Android subscription and giving that to the iOS subscription (without any notice that it was going to do so, mind you).
- It would appear that not everything in the system has been informed of the change in renewal date of the subscriptions after the auto-balancing of subscriptions.

Deleting the "MonoTouch" and "Mono for Android" directories in %PROGRAMDATA% and reactivating fixed the problem in this case. Thanks!
