It's not fixed. It keeps updating the SDK at every restart
Does the SDK crash? I mean, are you able to see the progress bar indicating the SDK is being downloaded?
If fills up, then disappears and nothing else
it happened three times. It also tried to update the docs, failed halfway and never asked again.
Could you send me the file %LOCALAPPDATA%\Xamarin\Logs\SDKUpdate.log please?
On the other hand, I need more info. Please follow these steps:
- Look at %TEMP% you will find a bunch of numeric folders something like (%TEMP%\635199590928050048).
- Open the more recent one an open the zip you will find inside.
- Let me know how many files are listed there and if possible their names.
Let me know which Xamarin.iOS version are you using on Mac and VS please...
A potential fix for this is described in bug #16211. That fix may not completely fix this problem so it will have to be checked thoroughly.
no such dir. I have
I got the message again today.
It's updated successfully, it seems
If you saw the monotouch.xml file it means that the documentation has been updated and as a consequence the monotouch.xml has changed. Hence the SDK sync has been launched in order to bring the new monotouch.xml to VS.
This process is going to be entirely redesigned for future release, right now it's been a expected behavior.
I am about to close this bug. Please feel free to reopen it if you notice unexpected behavior.
Thanks for your collaboration.
Today I have checked this issue with following builds:
After completing SDk documentation merging(When Installation completed using iOS.VisualStudio.Documentation.Manager), I am getting 'msbuild' and 'Mono.IO.VisualStudio.Documentation' under C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Log\MonoTouchVS. These are the gist for the same:
But I am not seeing monotouch.xml. Please suggest me for the same.
Still seems dodgy. I updated XS today, then only after many hours VS fired an SDK warning....
Correction. It just fired again, right away, after reopening VS and a iOS project.
So definitely not fixed.
Also, if I choose not to update at the modal messagebox (which prevents changing stuff in VS), how can I get the same prompt ?
And it keeps happening roughly every day
Could it be due to me using old SDK 6 along with SDK 7 ?
Hi Andy, it's unlikely but possible. Did you find out the reason?
Not at the moment. I switched to 7 and got the popup at least once. But probably less than before.
Can I suggest performing this stuff silently in the future when you fixed it ? I don't see much value in answering "no" to the popup
Sure. This stuff will be redesigned and I will take your feedback into account. Hence, changing the status to Feature.
