Can't create IPA file

I have problem creating the IPA file for Xamarin.IOS project. In properties of the project i've selected the certificate and the provision and also selected the "create IPA file". The build finishing succesfully but no IPA file there. The project is on Release mode. Any ideas?

I also tried to make archive from the Mac but i am getting errors "file not found" because the icons folder have extention of .app and its not recognised by Mac

    Refer to my steps , it succeed to produce the ipa file .

    1. Ensure correct certificate and provision .

    2. Right click iOS project -> Properties -> iOS IPA Options

    3. Click Build Solution , a dialog will show up to ask permission on your mac ,input login password , click Allow or Always Allow.

    4. Find the ipa in the following path.

    In VS2019 i can't make the IPA file what ever i tried.
    I managed to make the IPA file on my Mac after associating the icon files again

    If you are following my steps strictly above ,try to remove the certificate and provision in KeyChain Access on mac , download from apple develop and reinstall them .
