Description PJ 2013-12-06 12:39:10 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1) Create a template project
2) Build
3) See errors about needing app name / bundle identifier (not great, but we have this behavior until we implement generating them)
4) Double click the error


Opens iOS Application property page


Opens Info.plist as source

This is just not implemented yet, but my environment is:

Win 8 x86
MTVS 1.10.29

I have checked this issue with the latest stable build XVS 3.11.666 + XI To check this issue I have removed Application name, Bundle Identifier and build  and deploy the the application, it deploy successfully however it shows me following warning regarding Bundle Identifier:

Warning 1 Project does not have bundle identifier specified. Using 'com.xamarin.Mohit1' to match provisioning profile. C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\iOS\Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets 401 3 App60

Now I am not getting any error as mentioned in the bug description, hence I am closing this issue.
