Hi Szilárd,

Have you been able to sync? Could you provide further information about this bug please?

Comment 2 Szilárd Széll 2013-11-18 06:43:06 UTC

Well, I don't know.
Because I got like 10 updates in a row and I really didn't try to memorize the size of the updates :) (maybe some patch id would be nice)

All I can say is that some of the updates went well (without VS crash) and some didn't. Like 50-50%.

I am on a Win 8 machine btw, and the crashes happens with Visual studio 2012, update 3.

Just installed update 4, so when I'll get more updates, I'll check it.
Comment 3 Szilárd Széll 2013-11-18 07:56:30 UTC
Okay, just got the new update. And it crashed.
Weird stuff: the updater can not close the VS properly, and I had to kill it. After that, update installed, and VS crashed.

Hi Szilárd,

Did you updated the last version? is that still happening to you?

Comment 5 Szilárd Széll 2014-01-18 07:38:51 UTC

Well, I didn't notice any updates in the past 1 month. Did you hide them?
So, no, I didn't experience any freeze because of updates.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

VS 2012
Xamarin for VS: (c2a61fa9598f158214c3b08006c7471693f385e8)

We are successfully able to update iOS sdk with VS 2012.
