As of recently I believe since installing Visual Studio 2017 RC I have been sent windows notifications saying Xamarin Updates Available Click here to install etc. However clicking on this notification does this as well as the tray icon that also gives the same message when panning over it. Anything I can do to solve this get a new notification every hour.

## Non-engineering team preliminary quick review

The updater experience for VS 2017 final will be using a new mechanism where the updates for Xamarin are installed via the same mechanism as the updates for VS 2017 itself.  At the moment the update notification bubble in VS 2017 RC / preview can simply be ignored.  Stay tuned for corrections to that notification by the time of the VS 2017 final release.
