No home screen, cant run application in debug mode. Screen is just black ??
Tried the workaround and the app work on Mac simulator, but when checking the remote windows ios simulator, the windows ios simulator turns up ..with a black screen failing. Even pressing the home screen does not work.

Restarting the Simulator causes the simulator to spin the loading symbol then crashing.
