I can't reproduce this with 0.99.3. Visual Studio shows I'm connected to my Mac build host, and iOS workbooks connect from Windows.

Can you ensure that you're actually connected to the Mac agent, and include client logs if you are?

Please check with XVS 4.3 that a mac build host has been configured.

Tools -> Options -> Xamarin -> iOS Settings -> Xamarin Mac Agent

I am able to reproduce this.
