Created attachment 4049 [details]

[Condition] Trail/higher license is activated

Open attached iOS sample 'MT9002' in VS and build the sample. 
Observe that it gives build error.
Build Error: "Error1 The type or namespace name 'Bindings' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)C:\Users\monup\Desktop\New folder\MT9002\MT9002\AppDelegate.cs"

When we try to add missing assembly in References folder then we are not getting Binding assembly in Add References window. 
However, on mac in XS we are able to add 'bindings-test.dll' file and after that build error disappears on XS.
But in VS we are not 'bindings-test.dll' file in Add References window.

Environment info:
VS 2010/2012
MTVS 1.2.103

Regression Status: Not Regression. This issue also exist with MTVS 1.1.200(Stable).

The .csproj file references ..\..\bindings\bindings-test.dll which does not exist. Not sure what's the original sample, but if it generates bindings from a native library then this is not supported in VS.

Hi PJ,

Today we have checked this issue with above attached ios sample 'MT9002'  with bug. As per comment 1  The .csproj file references ..\..\bindings\bindings-test.dll does not exist. 

We have added missing bindingtest.dll file from  QualityAssurance-master/Automation/PricingTests/BuildErrorProjects/iOS/bindings/bindings-test.dll.

Now sample is build successfully with Trial, Business and priority License on VS. 

As per our understanding, now this issue can be closed as it is working fine, after adding the missing .dll file.

PJ, please confirm and closed this issue, if we are correct in our understanding or let us know your opinion for the same.

Yes indeed, invalid until we support bindings in VS.
