Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-12-12 15:42:17 UTC
XS does not use the MSBuild 12.0 toolset when the project ToolVersion is 12.0.
Comment 1 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2014-01-10 01:57:04 UTC
Note: Using the incorrect toolset causes the build to fail.
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2014-01-10 01:59:03 UTC
This is fixed for Windowsbut the Mac fix is blocked on shipping the fix for 16791 in a Mono release.
Comment 3 Matt Ward 2017-02-20 10:10:22 UTC
Closing this. ToolVersion 12.0 is supported now although Xamarin Studio should be using xbuild 14.0 to build the project.
