Comment 1 Timothy Risi 2017-10-25 22:17:32 UTC
Even though you might only be hitting this issue locally, we research & triage Xamarin.UITest issues through the Test Cloud support channels because there’s a lot of crossover between the testing platform and testing frameworks.

You can reach out to support by logging into testcloud.xamarin.com & clicking on “Support” in the menubar: http://content.screencast.com/users/Kent.Green/folders/Jing/media/572442e2-c82c-4a25-9a30-1f594f156dd7/00000323.png
Comment 3 Cosmin 2017-11-03 07:47:46 UTC
I also have this issue using Xcode 9.1

Is there any resolution on this?
Comment 4 Kent Green [MSFT] 2017-11-03 15:58:52 UTC
Hi Cosmin,

I've filed this bug in our internal Test Cloud bug tracker and am monitoring it. The issue specifically prevents tests from being run on iOS 11 simulators. iOS 10 & earlier simulators are unaffected, and it appears iOS 11 physical devices are also unaffected. 

So if this is the issue you are hitting, you can workaround it by targeting a non-iOS 11 simulator or another device. 

If that doesn't work, then you may be hitting a different issue. In which case, as noted in comment 1 please reach out to Test Cloud support with some more details about your symptoms & observations.
