Description Virgile Bello 2014-10-30 23:44:50 UTC
1/ Let's say I have a solution with a Windows project and an iOS project.
If I switch to Windows solution configuration (iOS project is unchecked in Configuration Manager), Xamarin iOS still opens pairing dialog *every time* I try to debug the windows project (even though Xamarin iOS is not needed), which is quite annoying.

2/ Also, it asks to pair when a solution containing an iOS project opens. I would prefer the less intrusive way of trying to pair only on first real build of a Xamarin iOS project (or only try to pair if it's an active solution configuration, similar to 1/).

Right now, those two issues makes it a pain to work on any Windows project if a Xamarin iOS project happens to be in the solution.

I am also able to reproduce first Issue. When iOS is unchecked from configuration and user open solution which have android, iOS amd Windows application, Pairing trigger opens. This is the screencat for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/2gxUdC0HSIzC

VS 2013 Update 2
XVS 3.7.248

2nd Issue is not clear to me here.

So I am changing the status to Confirmed as per First Issue.

2nd issue is about pairing opens when you open Visual Studio with that solution as well (even though this project is not enabled).

It can be reproduced by simply double clicking in Windows Explorer a .sln with unactive iOS projects.

This is super annoying. If you are not connected to a build host and try build this stuff happens.


Can you please add some kind of function to stop retrying reconnecting, or at least have some kind of rule telling, if you cancelled the pairing, stop retrying, until the user actively wants to pair again. This is super annoying battling these dialogs!

With XMA implementation this one is no longer valid.
