Inspector not showing

I'd like to look at the Inspector but I can't get it to show up.
Running VS2017 Enterprise I start my iOS app in the simulator and then click the Inspector icon in the toolbar. The result is the below output but no Inspector window show up anywhere. I should add that when I tried this the first time it did show up with a recommendation to upgrade to the latest version (Ithink it was 1.2 and from stable channel).

    When I manually started "Xamarin Workbooks" it seems the installation had been stalled. When finished I could indeed start the inspector from VS2017. The problem now is that it always gives an "Unable to connect" error. When I flip over to "View Inspector" I'm presented with a black rectangle and I also cannot "select a view". Clicking "Reconnect" results in that button disappearing but there's still no information presented in "View Inspector".

    You still need that log?

    I should mention that the iOS emulator is running in Windows 10 (not on the Mac). Do I still need to have the same Inspector version on the Mac? Also, is there a way to choose whether to run the iOS emulator on the PC or Mac?

    I upgraded Xamarin Workbooks on the Mac and now everything works as expected. Thanks!
