Do you only
have VS 2017 Preview installed? Then yes, you're correct, the installer doesn't iterate over preview installations as we do not officially support beta or prerelease software even though you can use UI for Xamarin from any instance.
UI for Xamarin itself doesn't get installed to Visual Studio directly, rather it gets installed to Windows and is located by default at C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Telerik UI for Xamarin R1 2018
VS 2017 instance can use it.
As far as the UI for Xamarin VSExtensions
go, you can use the VS2017 Preview's Extensions and Updates
dialog to install the extensions:
If you don't plan on installing a release version of VS2017, you can workaround this by either using the
- NuGet package (via the Telerik NuGet server
(or downloaded pkg file)
- Downloading the ZIP folder (contains all the files that get installed, including demos)
You can find these items on the UI for Xamarin downloads page
