Description Rustam Zaitov 2014-08-07 15:40:37 UTC
When I add ref to to app extension within main app I can't make rebuild.
Build failed with:
/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Xamarin/iOS/Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets: Error: Error loading partial Info.plist template file 'obj/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/actool/partial-info.plist': Could not find file "/Users/rzaitov/Documents/Apps/A_Xamarin/private-samples/ios8/ImageInverter/ImageInverter/obj/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/actool/partial-info.plist". (ImageInverter)

1. Build main app – failed
2. Build main app second time – ok
3. Clean
4. Build main app – failed
5. Rebuild main app – failed.

fixed in monotouch ios8 branch
Comment 3 Jeffrey Stedfast 2014-08-25 15:02:41 UTC
The problem is that you are importing 2 incompatible msbuild targets in the ImageInverterExt project

Only import ONE msbuild targets file. Never import 2 or more.
Comment 4 Rustam Zaitov 2014-08-25 17:26:36 UTC
Thanks for fixing targets. I merge sample to master and delete image-inverter-sample branch

Actually this didn't fix issue. I still face up with this problem during rebuilding the project.

Updated sample available here

It works fine for me once I fixed the ProjectTypeGuids in the project (git pull to get the fixes)

I have checked this Issue and I am successfully able to build the application. I have created iOS application and added Extension application, I have given reference of extension project to main project and Build it. It is getting build successfully every-time. This is the build output for the same: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/c30aaf075fb5c88bc175
