Attached csproj file

I have a project that compile fine with xbuild, that doesn't compile properly in Xamarin Studio (include pre and post compilation)and it is an Android C# project. 

When it does compile, the following error occurs:
/Volumes/Dropbox Protected/Developpement
Error: Command '../Apigen/build/bin/rabbitmq-dotnet-apigen.exe
/apiName:AMQP_0_9_1 /n:v0_9_1 ../../../docs/specs/amqp0-9-1.stripped.xml
../../../gensrc/RabbitMQ.Client/autogenerated-api-0-9-1.cs' exited with
code: 126. (RabbitMQ.Client)

Comment 1 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-07-12 23:54:42 UTC
This sample is incomplete; I'm getting:

RabbitMQ.Client.csproj could not import "$(MSBuildCommunityTasksPath)MSBuild.Community.Tasks.Targets" (RabbitMQ.Client)

The exec task that's failing has a $(PropLaunchExe) property expansion in in, which seems to be blank. The result is that the Exec task is trying to run a .exe directly w/o using Mono, which won't work. And looking at RabbitMQ repo, this property comes from a file called Local.props, which must be created manually:


But your version of the project file has been modified not to import local.props at all:

<!-- AF No more need of local.props -->

So basically, the project is broken.

Please grad copy of the RabbitMQ client at :

And try to compile. It will be may be more easy that effectively working on a modified version.
