VS2019 in VM Crashes constantly with iOS

IanVinkIanVink CAInsider, University ✭✭✭

I run VS 2019 in a VM on a Mac using Parallels. The system works, I can debug in a simulator a Xamarin Forms app, but VS 2019 locks up and is unresponsive at least 5 times an hour. The VM's host, a Mac, is also the build server.

How can I debug the problem? Is there a log I can look at? I've tried deleting all the Caches off the Mac

    i have the same problem. i wonder if thats something to do with running VM issue or occurs also on actual Mac machines. did you find anything regarding this? I have recognized that VS previewer is running in the background and it reaches 1 gb ram usage.
