Please create a new report on
Developer Community with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Don't have a license file or account
2) Open VS without opening a project
3) Go to Tools->Options->Xamarin->iOS
4) Click [Configure]
"Please activate your Xamarin.iOS before configure your build host"
A) (best) User should just be prompted to activate
B) (easiest) Text should be updated to read
"Please activate Xamarin.iOS before configuring your build host."
At the very very least, let's implement B) and move the A) solution to V2
