Installing Xamarin for Visual Studio 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User9843 posted

    I installed a Xamarin trial and then upgraded to the business license. After installing the trial version, I installed Visual Studio 2012. I downloaded and ran the Windows installer (after installing 2012). Now, the "Xamarin Account" option appears under Tools in VS2010, but NOT in VS2012. I have rerun the installer a couple of times (as Admin), and even tried manually installing the msi files from the installer log. VS2012 doesn't seem to be getting the plugin.

    I have deleted my trial license from the MonoForDroid\License directory.

    Any ideas?

    I finally got it to install in 2012 by:

    Uninstalling everything Xamarin Related -Xamarin Installer -Xamarin Studio -Mono iOS -Mono Android

    Uninstalling VS 2010 (this may not be needed) Reinstalling Xamarin using the installer at store.xamarin.com

    Now VS2010 has a "Xamarin Account" option under "Tools."
