Getting iOS Simulator to work for the first time

Building an example application (TodoREST), I have a MAC paired as the agent nd everything builds fine. When it runs up the simulator (simulator window is on the PC) I get a black screen, and none of the buttons above the screen are enabled (All grey). The only thing active on the simulator window is the 'scale to fit'.

I'm clearly missing something very basic, but no idea what?

    Ok, looks like the windows remote iOS simulator is broken, (if it ever worked), just go to Tools->Options->Xamarin ->iOS Settings and untick 'Remote Simulator to Windows' - the simulator then runs on the MAC, but at least it runs.
