Description mitchmuenster 2017-05-31 04:06:05 UTC
Latest Stable VS2017 install 15.2.2 is not updated with the latest Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Mac SDK's and theirfor is causing weird issues for building and will not sync up. VS2017 is using Xamairn.iOS and VS for mac is using

hard to reproduce but here are the issues thus far that I have experienced more then once

- app just crashes, no explanation, no error, build host wont connect and iphone 7 plus running iOS 10.3 ui locks up
- after a build, buildhost is set to "limited" mode and refuses to build again. must kill and reconnect to build host, restart VS, and/or restart Windows to connect Again (no info in Xamarin Output window)
- iOS build over 5g WIFI connection to hardwired mac mini takes 30+ min to build (every time)
- build host randomly gets set into limited mode. Xamarin Ouput window shows following info:
Connected to the Mac Mitch’s Mac mini ( with Full support.
Disconnected from the Mac Mitch’s Mac mini (
The underlying client has been disconnected by the remote host

unable to remove out of limited mode without reconnecting. (happens randomly, Mac is not in use besides youtube, not locked, phone is not locked, and no disconnection request or dialog on either end has displayed.

 I have fix mentioned in https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=56213#c24 as mscorlib issue still is an issue for me even with update.
