# Repro
1) Install Simulator
2) Open VS, make sure you are connected to a Mac agent
3) Close VS, open it again, open a iOS project, XVS will automatically reconnect because it has remembered the details
4) Repeat step 3 as much as you want, XVS still remembers
5) Install a different Simulator build, I used
6) Open VS, and open an iOS project

Actual result:
XVS prompts me with instructions about connected to my mac agent, and it has forgotten the mac agent I previously was using along with the credentials

Expected result:
Simualtor should not be messing with my XVS settings :)

# Screencast

Let me know if there are install logs or something you need

This was fixed with the installer going out in 15.1, in updating to 15.2 this should not appear.
