Example project with hangs mmp
See http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/1202/mmp-hangs-during-app-store-build-with-external-file-reference for details.
When packaging for App Store, mmp hangs on "Merging Mono Runtime into app bundle" with the attached project, which includes an external .dylib and .dll. It does not hang when the Packaging options is set to "Don't Link".
Hello Kalid, it looks like the issue (the hang) is already fixed (but not yet released). Using the lastest (internal) build your test case results in:
error MM2002: Failed to resolve "Shortcut.MASShortcut" reference from "masshortcut, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
mmp exited with code 1
What happens is that `mmp` is looking for `masshortcut.dll` (based on the assembly fully qualified name) but your assembly (file) name is MASShortcut.dll. For case sensitive file system (like on Macs) this is not the same file.
The good news is that simply renaming your assembly file to masshortcut.dll should fix your issue (it worked for me) or you could rebuild the assembly with the casing you like.
Thanks Sebastien, that worked! Appreciate the fast response.
Today, we have verified this issue with the latest builds;
Xamarin Studio 188.8.131.52
Mono Framework 2.10.12
And we have observed that today we are successfully able to build and debug the application after including Mono Runtime
Hence closing this issue.
