IOS Simulatore throwing fatal error message

While running the app in IOS simulator, it throws following error message. "a fatal error occured while trying to start the server".

I am using visual studio 2017.
IOS simulator version is IPhone 6 iOS 11.1

In mac,
Xcode is 9 and remote session also enabled and it should be connected in to my machine.

How to resolve this issue. kindly guide me if any one knows?

    Verify whether you have latest iOS version on both windows as well as mac machines.

    You can disable the ios windows simulator. Simply go to tools > options > xamarin > ios settings. There should be a checkbox that you can disable called "remote simulator to windows". This will open the simulator on the mac instead. This is more of a work around than a fix.
