Allow use of Remoted iOS Simulator from ALL editions of Visual Studio

Until the latest release, where the iOS simulator on windows was renamed to Remoted iOS Simulator, it was possible to remote the iOS simulator to windows from any version of Visual Studio.

With the current release this has changed. Now a Visual Studio Enterprise Edition licence is required.

Clearly this is not a technical restriction as it was previously possible, so it must be a simple money grab, which goes completely against Microsoft's more open approach to feature availability from recent years.

For those of us who develop with neither direct, sole access to a Mac build machine, nor the offensively expensive Enterprise edition of VS, please change this back and allow use of the Remoted iOS simulator on windows from ALL editions of VS.
