Coverting to MSBuild format from a Visual Studio 2002 csproj crashes MonoDevelop (Xamarian Studio 4.0).

What is the crash log?
Comment 2 Jacob miles 2013-03-04 19:12:33 UTC
Where do I get the crash log?
Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-03-05 13:08:58 UTC

If it's a native crash there should also be a trace in the apple crash reporting dialog, please copy/paste that too.

Experienced this problem as well on XS 4.0.9 while trying to load the PhysicsFS solution. Attaching my log. XS crashed over the fact that pkg-config couldn't find Mono, which is installed in a "non-standard" location (by default on my machine). I have PKG_CONFIG_PATH set in my shell environment, but OS X apps obviously don't inherit that. By launching XS from Terminal.app like below, it did not crash during conversion.

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/Current/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH"
open -a "Xamarin Studio"

We now follow PKG_CONFIG_PATH when trying to use pkg-config.
