I wasn't able to reproduce this using 1.2.96
Comment 2 PJ 2013-05-29 17:43:20 UTC
A few of these 1.2.96 issues seem to be unreproducible from the VS-dev side of things. Are you guys running the wrench packages or local builds?
Comment 3 GouriKumari 2013-05-29 18:28:20 UTC
Install build Xamarin.iOS: 1.2.97
Open or create an iOS appication
Go to Project Properties

I used the wrench build
Comment 5 narayanp 2013-05-30 03:02:15 UTC
Today we have checked this issue with following builds:

All Windows
VS 2012/2010
iOS for VS- 1.2.103

we are able to open iOS Application in project properties and not seeing that error.

Hence closing this issue
Comment 6 Jose Miguel Torres 2013-06-01 14:20:40 UTC
Just for the future. This error is because of one of the Xamarin.Shell libraries is older. It should not happen but if it does,  let me know.
