Description Nischal 2014-04-02 10:48:08 UTC
Step to reproduce:
1. Create a Universal Storyboard tabbed project
2. Open iPad and iPhone storyboard files.

Actual Result:
On opening iPad and iPhone storyboard files for Universal Storyboard project, shows error "the format of this legacy storyboard file is not supported". Clicking link "upgrade this file to supported format" ends connection to Mac build host. Again clicking link " Connect to build server" crashes VS.

Expected Result:
iPad and iPhone storyboard files for Universal Storyboard tabbed project should load correctly.

cc'ing dean on this because he's involved in making sure the templates are all upgraded to Xcode 5 format.
Comment 2 Alan McGovern 2014-04-04 18:56:21 UTC
The crash has been fixed, but the issue with the files being the old format remains. That issue is being tracked with bug #17675, so i'll just close this bug.
Comment 3 Saurabh 2014-06-09 08:06:21 UTC
As per comment 2, crash has been fixed, I have checked this issue with following builds:

VS 2013
Xamarin (172e5c004e0ff647f7bd378ab5298508e97c84cd)
Visual Studio extension to enable development for Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android

Now, on reconnecting build host, VS does not crash and for the issue with the files being the old format is being tracked with bug #17675.

Hence, closing this issue.
