Xamarin Zip Logs

Using Microsoft Visual Studio Preview with patch provided by Xamarin because of bug 60358... 
when running the build directly on the device the Debug no longer displays output from the device (ie Debug.writeline) and app hangs or crashes.

When attempting to run on simulator Xamarin Popup alert shows:

Xamarin Simulator
The device [Guid] was not found.


It's attempting to launch the emulator on the PC. It woudl be fine if we coudl get it to launch the simulator on mac... 

Don't see any way to control this. Interesting note is when you click Show iOS Simulator it DOES open it on the mac...
