Description Brendan Zagaeski (Xamarin Team, assistant) 2014-09-22 22:10:55 UTC
Xamarin 3.6.245 emits a new warning in Visual Studio whenever it is paired to the Mac build host:

> There is a minor mismatch between the installed Xamarin.iOS (version
> on the Mac Build Host and the local
> Xamarin.iOS When applying updates, make sure to keep both
> the Mac and Windows in sync.

There is _no_ way to stop this warning message because it's not possible to change the "local" Xamarin.iOS version. Although the idea of the warning is nice, I'd vote that Xamarin should not emit warnings that can't be stopped. This warning is already proving to be a bit of a confusing distraction for users [1].

[1] For example, the first post here:

Regression status: new feature in XVS 3.6.

## Steps to reproduce

1. Open a Xamarin.iOS project in Visual Studio.

2. Pair to the build host (if not already paired).

3. Look in "View -> Error List -> Warnings".

Synchronizing the SDK via "Tools -> Options -> Xamarin -> iOS Settings -> SDK Synchronization -> Check Now" has no effect on the warning.

I halve checked this issue and with XVS 3.7.165 + X.iOS Now we are not getting this warning message in Windows VS by following steps mention in bug description.

Hence closing this issue.
