Steps to reproduce this issue.
1. Open VS 2012/2013
2. Create or open iOS application.
3. Open project option.
4. Select iOS IPA option and check 'Build Ad-hoc/enterprise package(IPA).
5. Save project.
6. Deploy application on device
7. Click 'Show IPA file in Finder'.

Actual result: After clicking on 'Show IPA file in Finder', Finder does not open on mac server which is connected to VS.

Expected result: Finder should open on Mac server after clicking on 'Show IPA file in Finder'.

We might have to live with this bug for 1.6, but I'd like Dominique to see it before we move to that milestone.

Fix should be part of this build - https://wrench.internalx.com/Wrench/ViewLane.aspx?lane_id=717&host_id=69&revision_id=210895 when it is ready.
