Description Ben Beckley 2017-01-24 21:43:31 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1) Start VS2017
2) Create a new iOS app from a template
3) Open the iOS project properties
4) Select the iOS Application tab
5) Click the Deployment Target dropdown menu (not necessary, but seems to bring the issue forth)

Expected Result: The fields are blank if there is no XMA connection. The fields are populated with iOS versions if there is an XMA connection.

Actual Result: VS goes unresponsive and crashes or restarts.

NOTE: I have reliably reproduced this while an XMA connection was being established. The few times I attempted this after an XMA connection was established, there was no crash. But I wouldn't rule out the possibility of it happening.
