Screenshot of the unsolvable warning
Unsolvable warning in the "Xamarin" section of the "Output" window: "There is a mismatch between the installed Xamarin.iOS ... and the local Xamarin.iOS"
> There is a mismatch between the installed Xamarin.iOS (version 188.8.131.52) on
> the Mac Mac Build Host (192.168.1.56) and the local Xamarin.iOS 184.108.40.206.
> While this may not be an issue, it might cause unexpected behaviors. When
> applying updates, make sure to keep both the Mac and Windows in sync.
This warning is unsolvable and problematic for essentially all of the same reasons as the old, closely related Bug 23270. (Bug 23270 was aimed at removing this same warning from the "Error List" window. This new bug is about removing it from the "Xamarin" section of the "Output" window.)
(a) This warning is ignorable: these are the correct intended versions to use together.
(b) There is no such release as 220.127.116.11 for Mac or 18.104.22.168 for Windows, so it is not possible to eliminate this mismatch.
## Regression status: regression in Xamarin 4.0
BAD: XamarinVS 22.214.171.124 (944b6bd) + Xamarin.iOS 126.96.36.199 (97af501)
GOOD: XamarinVS 3.11.1594.0 (a06d6d5) + Xamarin.iOS 188.8.131.52 (1f068b4)
## Steps to reproduce
1. Open a Xamarin.iOS project in Visual Studio.
2. Connect to the build host.
3. Open the "View -> Output" window and select "Xamarin" from the "Show output from" drop-down menu at the top of that window.
The "Xamarin" section of the "Output" window shows the "mismatch" warning.
(See also the attached screenshot.)
## Expected results
With XamarinVS 3.11 + Xamarin.iOS 9.1, the "mismatch" warning did _not_ appear in the "Xamarin Log" section of the "Output" window.
(Note that the "mismatch" warning _did_ appear in the `devenv*.log` file in XVS 3.11, but that was less of a problem because users didn't look at those log files as often as the output in the IDE. The output messages that appear directly in the IDE are under closer scrutiny.)
## Possible improvements
Simply removing this warning from the "Xamarin" section of the "Output" window (and keeping it in the `Ide*.log` file) would restore XamarinVS 3.11 behavior, so that would be sufficient to eliminate the regression.
It might also be acceptable to remove the warning message entirely (from both the Output window and the `Ide*.log` file). Since this warning is very often a "false positive," I'm not sure we'd lose much by removing it. Perhaps another similar warning with a lower false positive rate could be added in some future release (tracked as a separate enhancement request).
Fixed in version 184.108.40.2069 (master)

I have checked this issue with Xamarin.VisualStudio_220.127.116.11 and XI 18.104.22.168 and able to reproduce the reported behavior.
I have checked this issue with Xamarin.VisualStudio_22.214.171.124 i.e available in trello card and C6 monotouch-126.96.36.199_d3eb416230bbba5d3da04404006db475342d5d90. Now this issue is working fine.
