Hi Team,

I have installed the Xamarin Studio trail, due to the difficulty in installing complete setup, I have installed the Xamarin.IOS separately( from the link given in the log message poped up while discrete installation). 

Now the problem is,I am unable to create IOS application from studio. The following is the error message:

Error: A valid Xcode installation could not be found. If your copy of Xcode is installed to a non-standard prefix, please specify the location in Xamarin Studio's Preferences under 'SDK Locations'.

Also I couldn't able to find the location of the Xamarin.ios SDK in my machine. Please find the screenshot for reference.

Can you please advice me to resolve this problem.

You might have a rather old XS with a very new XI. Can you give us all versions ?

The easiest way to get exact version information is to use the "Xamarin Studio" menu, "About Xamarin Studio" item, "Show Details" button and copy/paste the version informations (you can use the "Copy Information" button).

It's not the Xamarin.iOS SDK Location that's missing (even in the screenshot), it's the Apple SDK. This contains some tools (e.g. simulator), libraries and header files required to build iOS applications.

To get it you need to download the latest Xcode (from Apple) and install it on your Mac.
