Customer experience: 

I can’t make work Visual Studio with Xamarin. I am trying to open one of your demo projects (T-Shirts store) but VS2012  constantly crash. It looks like the trial license does not work as a business license or something like that. (see attached screenshot)
--- Customer Resolution ---

Please, discard my last message.
Creating a blank iOS Project in VS2012 updated mi trial iOS license and now it is working,
Time to start developing.


Andrew's comments:

This is a new customer - who just downloaded and installed Xamarin.

Likely the iOS and Android plugins were both installed - but no Trial was started prior to opening the SharpShirt solution.

Can we ask the customer to get the logs for us? The older logs before the fix would be useful to diagnose too.
Comment 4 Jose Miguel Torres 2014-05-21 13:19:30 UTC
@Andrew: VS should ask to start a trial when opening a iOS project if the user account has not previously consumed a trail period.

I have checked it out and it's working and triggering the trial option on XVS 2.00.112

As per this bug description, the user has been able to run the sharp shirt project right?  If so, I am about to set this to WorksForMe. Then, if this turns out in a reproducible issue in the future we could reopen it again.
