Recently, this error has been occurring for folks building and deploying to iOS simulators and devices.
I know this is a rather generic error, however several users are reporting it: http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/24057/ios-failed-to-start-application-on-the-target-simulator
Message: error MT0024: Could not find required file '/Users/mac/Library/Caches/Xamarin/mtbs/builds/App1/80e08e8b42e9226ba09756b5985c2288/bin/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/App1.app/Info.plist'.
Xamarin 22.214.171.124 (6b70b1e28c5a733187f7659220da4c0ff61ab2b1)
Visual Studio extension to enable development for Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android
Both cases in forums are related to mtbs/VS support
I think we can close this as a duplicate of a new bug I just filed that includes one way to reproduce this error in normal use:
Neither the forum thread nor the Desk case contains any evidence to suggest that bug 23953 is _not_ the same problem.
