If Mac build host is activated, user unable to get PIN by double clicking on 'Xamarin.iOS Build Host'. However, if mac build host is not activated then user gets PIN by double clicking on 'Xamarin.iOS Build Host'.
User should able to generate PIN by double clicking on 'Xamarin.iOS Build Host' whether Mac build host is activated or not.
Suppose if Mac build host is already activated and a user try to make pair this mac build host with VS then he is not able to generate PIN and unable to pair it with VS.
Suppose if Mac build host is already activated and paired with one VS. Now, user wants to make pair this mac build host with another VS then he is not able to generate PIN and unable to pair it with VS.
Environment info :
Xcode 5 and 4.6.3
Dean can you confirm this is related to the licencing issue you fixed a day or 2 ago?
Only one 'PIN' can be generated at a time.
The idea is that the Xamarin.iOS Build Host can only pair with one Visual Studio. If the user wants to connect a different VS they will need to unpair and pair (i.e generate a new PIN) for the new VS. The old pin will be invalid.
The issue you are seeing in the screencast is probably due to a staging licence, this has been fixed in the latest version
Today we have checked this issue with following builds:
All Mac and Windows
iOS for VS 1.6.29
Now we are able to generate PIN after clicking on Unpair and the clicking on Pair button from 'Xamarin.iOS Build Host' window on build host.
Changing the status to Verified.
