Description t9mike 2012-09-04 10:00:05 UTC
When I switch from booting in Mac PC Windows Bootcamp and Windows VM I get prompted to re-activate. This is a hassle. I am also not sure what will happen if I was offline and had no access to Internet: will I be able to deploy to device?. I was told by support this is due to MAC address changing. Mono for Android should keep track of previous MAC addresses so it can handle this common scenario for Xamarin customers (since many will be MonoTouch developers as well).
