I am currently evaluating Xamarin.iOS using a dveleopment PC running Windows 8 / Visual Studio 2012 and a Mac as a build server running Mountain Lion.
Alas, Xamarin installation, Xamarin Studio and the Visual Studio integration cannot handle an Internet connection using a proxy. Finally, my administrator allowed both machines to use Internet without a proxy so that Xamarin setup succeeded.
Now, when I open an iOS solution in Visual Studio, after some seconds a dialog appears saying "The build server currently being used (...) does not have the required license for this product. Please click the 'Activate' button below in order to launch...". After clicking that button, the dialog says "Activation application has been launched on your Mac machine. Please got to the machine and follow instructions on the screen. After the process is done, please come...".
The problem is: there is no applcation launched on the Mac machine...
So that else can I do to get this running?
Many thanks in advance & best regards!
