Visual Studio log file

Hi! I'm trying to use Xamarin from VS connecting to my MBP running OS X 10.11.4, both systems have all the available updates installed and Xamarin Studio and VS Extension are running Stable channel, both updated. I've attached my log from VS to the bug. I'm trying to overcome it for more than half of the year, so would appreciate any help :)

I think this is just fallout from a provisioning profile issue. The root problem seems to be:

Xamarin.Messaging.Client.MessagingClient Error: 0 : [2016-05-16 15:09:01.8700] An error occured on client vs11976andre while executing a post for topic xvs/idb/

Reassigning to the iOS component for now. If there is a problem on the designer side please reassign it back!

I'm not really sure if that is provisioning fault, because I can sign my apps and debug them on personal iPhone without any problems.
Comment 3 Andrew 2016-05-31 20:29:08 UTC
Just installed latest stable update with designer and finally (I'm literally on the seventh sky).

Sorry, forgot to finish message. And finally was able to connect from VS to my Mac without any errors.
