Description Kyle White 2016-12-13 17:21:58 UTC
The most common use case for using the iOS Simulator on Windows is from within XVS, and when issues arise we need the iOS Sim logs from both the mac and the windows machine to diagnose the problem.

It would helpful if the "ZipLogs" and "ZipLogs (last 7 days)" features would also include capturing the iOS sim logs we need. The logs needed are in the following location:

Client/Windows: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Xamarin\Logs\Xamarin.Simulator\ 
Server/Mac: ~\Library\Logs\Xamarin\Simulator.Server\

Sounds like a nice improvement.
Moving to C10 for planning.
