Xamarin installer for Visual Studio 2015 issue

    Question

  • I've been trying to install Xamarin through the Xamarin Installer, but the process keeps getting held up when it reaches the point where Xamarin needs to be installed with some errors, shown below. It tells me to install Xamarin manually by downloading and installing the link it provides. I had a few issues, where bonjour services was not working and I fixed them, and Xamarin was then fully installed through the manually downloaded installer. So I went back to the installer to retry the Xamarin Installer, but it keeps getting held up at the same step showing the same download link and the same errors.
    I have tried uninstalling all instances of Xamarin and retried the installer, but it keeps coming up with the same errors.

    Installation of 'Xamarin' failed with more than one exception (attempt 3)
    Errors while installing items.
    Exception type: System.AggregateException
    Installation of archive 'C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\Xamarin\downloads\Xamarin.VisualStudio_4.3.0.784.msi' failed with exception.
