Description sothy.chan 2014-04-10 21:41:08 UTC
I am running Visual Studio 2013 Professional on Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.8.5 on a virtual machine through VMware Workstation.  For the most part, it works OK, but when I added the Google Maps component, I get the following error at compile on a Mac:

warning MT1302: Could not extract the native library GoogleMaps from (directory on PC side).

Error MT0000: Unexpected error: please file a bug report at bugzilla.xamarin.com.

I get around this by copying the folder from my Windows to my Mac OS locally, and then compile/debug.  Sharing is working properly as I can access the solution and directory on my Mac side, which is shared by my PC.  Please help.

I have checked this issue on VS 2013 Professional Win 7 and observed that I am  not getting any error on adding Google Maps component. I have checked it with ádding 'Google glass development kit' and 'Nokia Here Maps (Google Maps v2 API Compatibility). These are adding successfully.

Can you Please check again at your end.

I'm having the exact same issue. I'm using VS2015, with latest stable Xamarin.iOS and latest ( https://www.nuget.org/packages/Xamarin.Google.iOS.Maps.

Any update on this?
Comment 5 Joshua Martin 2016-04-13 20:23:30 UTC
I am seeing this with google maps as well.  
- VS2k15 Community (14.0.25123.00 Update 2)
- Xamarin iOS (3a25bf1)
- Google Maps Component

This is not a showstopper for me as I can just use the Mac slave to do any building I need manually, but I would like to be using VS2k15 on my PC instead of Xamarin Studio on mac.

Please feel free to contact me for any help debugging.
