Description Brendan Zagaeski (Xamarin Team, assistant) 2014-02-17 18:36:47 UTC
## Steps to reproduce

1. Create a new "Xamarin.Mac Library Project".

2. Add an empty class with any name.

3. Attempt to build the project.

## Result

The build fails with an error:
Program `TestLib.exe' does not contain a static `Main' method suitable for an entry point

## Workaround

Open the .csproj file for the Xamarin.Mac Library Project in a text editor, and change:

> <OutputType>Exe</OutputType>

... to:

> <OutputType>Library</OutputType>

## Version information

Xamarin Studio 4.2.3 build 54
Xamarin.Mac 1.6.34
Also tested with: Xamarin.Mac 1.6.27
