VS version info & Xamarin log

A user reported the same issue early February.  Neither reinstalling the extension nor reinstalling VS resolved it. 

Attached are VS's version information (including extensions) and the most recent Xamarin (IDE) log that shows the issue.

VS recognizes the user's account as an Enterprise account, as shown in the Xamarin logs.

As a notice to anyone who is looking at this thread--

The user who originally reported the issue was able to resolve it (and use Xamarin Profiler without problems) by updating to Visual Studio 2017 version 15.6 (and on Mac, Visual Studio 2017 for Mac version 7.4).
