How to uninstall Xamarin Mac Agent from Mac? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User240075 posted

    My currently setting can't even get a successful build, so I'm trying to reinstall Xamarin and XCode to see if it helps.

    So, the first thing, uninstall Xamarin.

    I have removed Xamarin from my Mac, but my VS from Windows machine can still connect to Xamarin Mac Agent? How? What else do I have to uninstall to remove this Xamarin Mac Agent?

    Thanks in advance.

    You'll want to start by uninstalling Xamarin.iOS as described in this guide:

    https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/gettingstarted/installation/uninstallingxamarin/#Uninstall_Xamarin.iOS

    After that you may find you can still connect from Visual Studio as SSH will still be running on your Mac. You can disable this in System Preferences -> Sharing -> Remote Login

    Thanks for the reply. I think I managed to remove everything Xamarin, however, there are still caches somewhere I couldn't find, ie all my past apple accounts are still showing in VS.

    I decided to reinstall entire Mac OS and start from scratch in the end.
