    I installed the latest version of Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS for Visual Studio.

    Now when I try to load an Android project in Visual Studio, it keep showing that message :

    Using Xamarin.Android with Visual Studio requires Business edition or higher.

    Then, it ask me to connect to the internet to proceed which I am of course.

    Also, I have an Enterprise licence, so that step should not be a problem.

    Any else having the same issue?

    If it makes you feel any better, the new release of Xamarin Studio is just as much of a trainwreck this morning. Someone must have pushed the release button before anything was tested.

    Not really, but it's probably the last time we will update Xamarin the first following days of the Stable release. Not sure to understand why it went Stable though.

    From one of the support guy :

    Apparently it is just our activation server having issues. https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/showbug.cgi?id=16199 and https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/showbug.cgi?id=16193

    I am getting the same issue where I am told to "please connect to the internet to proceed". When I click on the little "?" button, it lauches a browser window which navigates to a Xamarin support page, on the internet, successfully. :)

    Hi everyone,

    We're having some intermittent issues with the activation service, which is what you are seeing when you get the "Please connect to the internet to proceed" error.

    We're working hard to get it back up and running smoothly, thank you all for your patience.

    I passed the first step which was "not connected to the server"

    Now I get this issue:

    Xamarin.Components.Ide.ApiClients.ActivationException: Failed to look up user. at Xamarin.Components.Ide.Activation.ActivationService.GetErrorWorkflow(LicenseSyncResult[] results, Boolean ignoreSyncErrors) at Xamarin.Components.Ide.Activation.ActivationService.<GenerateFullWorkflowSequence>d__8a.MoveNext() at Xamarin.Components.Ide.Activation.ActivationDialog.DisplayWorkflowStep(ActivationWorkflowStep step) at Xamarin.Components.Ide.Activation.ActivationDialog.<>c__DisplayClass13.<StartSpinnerTaskAndScheduleContinuation>b__12(Task t)

    I tried again and it is now :

    System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error. at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() at Xamarin.Components.Ide.Web.RequestHelper.GetResponse(Func1 createRequest, Action1 prepareRequest, CancellationToken token) at Xamarin.Components.Ide.SSO.Client.DoRequest(String endpoint, String method, String body, CancellationToken cancellationToken) at Xamarin.Components.Ide.SSO.Client.CreateToken(String email, String password, CancellationToken cancellationToken) at Xamarin.Components.Ide.SSO.Client.<>c__DisplayClass5.<CreateTokenAsync>b__4() at System.Threading.Tasks.Task1.InnerInvoke() at System.Threading.Tasks.Task.Execute()

    I'm having the same issue, but it's still not working for me.

    What did you do to make it work again?
