Description Michael Klishin 2013-07-31 02:52:53 UTC
Xamarin Studio cannot open the following solution file:


while Visual Studio 2010 has no problem with it.

The error message says there are issues with a version string format.

The problem must be in one of the csprojs, because I can open the .sln just fine (although it complains about all the missing projects).

Without the .csproj files it is hard to tell what's wrong. The XS log file would also help (Help->Open Log Directory).

They can be found in the same repo, http://hg.rabbitmq.com/rabbitmq-dotnet-client.

I have tried to reproduce this issue at my end and observed that project provided in bug description is loaded successfully in XS as shown in screencast : http://www.screencast.com/t/PlhwqmR90IuQ

Could you please check it again at your end if possible ? If this issue still exist at your end, please provide the IDE logs and full Environment info by (Xamarin Studion->About->show Details).
