Heyo, when pairing fails I get told as much in the error pad: http://screencast.com/t/srD0JeD3G

Can this error either be improved so it's helpful/useful or removed?

while exploring 1.5.234

Is that still happening for you? I cannot find reference of that error message anymore
Comment 2 PJ 2013-10-23 17:47:18 UTC
Doubtful if the string doesn't exist, I'll set to resolved for verification.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

VS 2013
MTVS 1.8.365

We have tried to reproduce this issue but unable to get the message mention in screencast in bug description.

1. If build host is not found then we are getting following message :
"Connection to Xamarin.iOS Build Host failed. Double click here to select a server."

2. After connecting build host, if we cancel pairing window then following message appears :
"Pairing with the Xamarin.iOS Build Host was cancelled. You need to be paired with a Xamarin.iOS Build Host to debug/deploy iOS projects. Double click here to start the pairing process again."

Hence closing this issue.
