Building Xamarin.Form Windows component from a Mac

My main work computer is an Apple MacBook Pro.

I’ve seen many tutorials, even from Xamarin themselves, of how to build/compile the iOS component from a Windows PC using a Mac on the same network.

Is the opposite of this possible? Use a PC on the network to build the Windows component from a Mac?

Thank you,
David B

  • Thank you for your response Kentucker.
    Follow up question, if it is alright,

    How often in the build phase do I have to go and compile on the Windows machine?

    I’m sorry if this is an obvious question. I have not used Xamarin.Forms like this before.
