Screengrab of Xamarin studio and Tutorial.fs project build errors

Creating a brand new F# solution with the tutorial has the following build errors:

/Users/getchell/Projects/testfsharp/testfsharp/Tutorial.fs(27,27): Error FS0039: The namespace 'Data' is not defined (FS0039) (testfsharp)

/Users/getchell/Projects/testfsharp/testfsharp/Tutorial.fs(39,39): Error FS0039: The type 'meter' is not defined (FS0039) (testfsharp)

I have not edited the file at all.

There is also the following warning:

Warning: The reference 'FSharp.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' is not valid for the target framework of the project. (testfsharp)

Also, you need a F# Binding component.

Seems to be a project model issue where the reference look up doesn't work
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-03-13 13:18:44 UTC
Or an issue in the F# addin not providing that assembly...

Have you asked the F# addin community about this?
Comment 3 Dave Thomas 2014-01-16 06:41:54 UTC
I can't replicate this issue with a current version of F#.

It seems to be a case of the wrong version of F# installed as the SI standard units of measure were introduced in F# 3.0

We have checked this issue and observed that this is working fine at our end.
