Description NeoDarque 2014-05-03 12:52:34 UTC

Invalid references

When opening an existing project in XS 5.0 (that works just fine in older
versions of XS), both two of my added components (ZipArchive & Json.Net)
indicates that their references have not been added to the project despite the
fact that they are visible under references. (See attached screenshot). If I
remove the existing references and add new ones then XS is happy again.
Also, if I click the "add a reference" button, another reference will be added, this one with a ".dll" extension name visible.

I have tried to reproduce this issue and follow the following steps :

1. Create an iOS template Project in XS 4.2.4(build 36)
2. Add Json.NET file successfully
3. Install XS 5.0 
4. Open same project

Its not showing any warning message as shown in screencast : http://screencast.com/t/ztHD2tznaC

Please let me know if I have missed some steps to reproduce this issue?

I can't reproduce this either, do you have a repro project or the log files?
Comment 6 PJ 2014-05-08 12:33:04 UTC
Neo, Clancey - can you still reproduce the issue with the beta builds of XS5.0 (
Comment 9 NeoDarque 2014-05-08 16:16:20 UTC
It's still reproducible for me too.

Fixed in
Comment 11 Prashant manu 2014-05-13 11:00:25 UTC
We have checked 2-3 times by closing solution and then quitting XS. 
Component references are not shown as invalid.
