New install of VS 2019 Pro - Cannot pair to Mac

DаnDаn USMember ✭✭

I've tried 2 fresh installs of Visual Studio 2019 Professional on 2 different Windows 10 PCs.

I cannot pair the Mac. I choose the Mac, enter the password and get this error (same on both machines I've tried):

An unexpected error occurred while checking the SSH configuration of '' Could not find a part of the path:
"C:\Users\Dan\Appdata\Local\Xamarin\MonoTouch\hosts.key"

Installation of Visual Studio seemed to work without error. Remote access is allowed on the Mac.

The path it is complaining about indeed does not exist. I could create it but I don't know what hosts.key should contain.

Any ideas?

    Never mind, I figured out how to get round it.

    @Dan how did you fix this? im having the same problem.

    Yes that's what I did too. It seems odd that the folder doesn't get created by the installer if it is critically required!

    Perhaps a bug to be raised?
