Updated to newest version on the alpha yesterday, and now I am not able to create new Xamarin.iOS projects. When doing that in Visual Studio I get the error dialog, shown in the attachment.

This happens with both the classic and the new project types.

I have checked this issue and unable to reproduce it.

I upadted XVS to 3.6.239 and also able to create ios projects both classic and others.

Could you please provide us more additional detail like

1.Earlier which version of XVS you used ?
2.Process which followed by you to install XVS

Please let me know if I missed anything to reroduce it.

Upon further investigation it seems to be tied with a specific solution where this happens. If I create a new solution or use another existing solution it works just fine.


I'll add an attachment with the solution where it fails.

Moving to C10 for further investigation.
Comment 5 Jose Gallardo 2016-12-23 03:11:18 UTC
As we've added several improvements to our build system and deploying/debugging mechanism since the bug was reported, I'm resolving it tentatively as Fixed.
That said, if you're still facing this issue with current bits, please feel free to reopen the bug.
