I get this error with trying to deploy with Link SDK Assemblies only
Error MT2002: Failed to resolve "System.Int32 System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal::GetHRForException(System.Exception)" reference from "mscorlib, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7cec85d7bea7798e" (MT2002) (VisualKiosk)
If I select don't link apple rejects the application
We found the following non-public API/s in your app:
The MT2002 error occurs because this `GetHRForException` symbol does not exists in the mscorlib.dll assembly being processed by the linker. Some code from your application (or 3rd party assemblies) is using this (missing) API and needs to be removed/recompiled.
This can be compiled because the current compiler `smcs` needs some extra methods (e.g. System.Reflection.Emit) inside mscorlib.dll - but this is not the one being used on the device (where some features are not allowed). This should be fixed in a future release since we're switching to a newer compiler that does not have this requirement.
Note that this can also "work" on the simulator since the JIT is used. The JIT will only throw an exception if that code is reached at runtime, otherwise the missing symbol won't be "seen".
However the linker (and the AOT compiler) do not like missing symbols and will complain (error or a warning) since all the code is pre-processed/compiled.
>If I select don't link apple rejects the application
From time to time Apple updates their blacklist of selectors. There was a recent update and those symbols were removed from monotouch.dll.
Still you should not disable the linker since you risk to run into other issues (including going over the new Apple limit on executable sizes).
The right solution is to find the code that refer to the missing symbol and remove/replace it.
I assume the issue was fixed. If you still need help with this particular issue than please re-open it along with a test case.
