I have been trying to use the remote simulator on Visual Studio 2015 / Windows 7 with latest stable channel Xamarin on both my Windows machine and MacOS Sierra. My project (arcgis-runtime-samples-dotnet) runs in the simulator but my mouse clicks do nothing. In fact, the only thing that the remote simulator window is capable of doing properly is rotation - none of the other functions seem to do anything. This is also the case with our enterprise application, if it actually built and deployed.
The Mac has latest Xcode and is running iOS 10.2 simulator. If I deploy and run/debug the simulator build on the Mac itself, everything is fine.
Has anyone else seen this behavior?
EDIT: I have now discovered that the mouse input is still on the simulator window on the Mac, so while the display is frozen, mouse clicks on the Mac actually control the remote app on Windows
