Logs for Mac and Window systems
I have been struggling to open storyboard form last couple of month. When I try to open storyboard it throwing error “custom components are not being rendered because problems were detected ...” and active Mac connection is disconnected. I am using VS 2012 and 2015 IDE. I need to deliver my app to client so please help me to solve this problem.
I have also tried with blank storyboard but same issue even blank storyboard is not opening. I am attaching log files for both Mac and Window systems please have a look. Please help me to solve this problem.
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) with Service pack 1
VS: 2012 Ultimate , 2015 Community
Xamarin : 188.8.131.52
Xamarin Studio : 5.10.2
Xcode : 7.2.1
Xamarin Studio : 5.10.1
OS X: 9.4.1
This looks like VS is disconnecting from the mac right after it connects, thus causing the designer to fail:

According to the logs, some issues were present due to missmatches between Windows and Mac iOS versions.
Also, many improvements has been made related to the connection mechanism, so given that I cannot reproduce this bug and that it has been reported some time ago, I mark this issue as Resolved.
Please feel free to re open it if you still get issues on the connection to the Mac.
