Steps to reproduce:
Install Xamarin.iOS for VS 1.8.214.msi
Create a new iOSproject to trigger connect build host dialog wizard.
Select a macbuild host and add connect.
Pair VS with buildhost.
"The pin you entered was invalid. Please enter a valid pin" error is thrown.
I tried to unpair to generate a new pin, however it threw the same error again.
Also, tried connecting to another macbuild host which also gave the same invalid pin error.
Xamarin.ioS for VS 1.8.214.msi
MT 22.214.171.124.pkg / ML
MT 126.96.36.199.pkg /Lion
Retested again with Xamarin.iOS for VS 1.8.239.msi. I am now able to pair successfully with build host. "Invalid pin entered" error is no longer occuring.
Marking bug as resolved fixed.
Xamarin.iOS for VS 1.8.239.msi.
I have checked this issue with following build:
Xamarin for VS 1.12.247
I am also successfully able to pair with build host. "Invalid pin entered" error does not appear.
Closing this issue now.
