Description John Miller [MSFT] 2015-02-17 07:51:20 UTC

Error 10 Failed to load output manifest for ibtool: Unrecognized property list format. I3.Devenish.Mobile.iOS
Error 11 Output manifest contents: I3.Devenish.Mobile.iOS

**Actual Results:**

ibtool errors are build system problems. 

This is a build system issue so reassigning it to ios
Comment 3 Conor 2015-02-18 16:53:10 UTC
Changing iOS project minimum deployment target from iOS6 to iOS7 (after updating to Xamarin 3.8+) in project properties in Visual Studio allowed the build tool to finish building successfully.

However, I still get the above error appearing in the logs and sporadically it still disconnects.
Comment 4 Brendan Zagaeski (Xamarin Team, assistant) 2015-02-24 18:40:13 UTC
Ah, a bit deceptively the "I3.Devenish.Mobile.iOS" after "Output manifest contents:" (in comment 0) is _not_ the contents of the output manifest file, but instead just the name of the project (as copied from the "Error List" in Visual Studio).

The output manifest is empty in this case, just as in bug 25551. And I was able to build the storyboard in the attachment from comment 1 without error in my quick local tests, so I think bug 25551 is the sole problem in this case.

Accordingly, I will resolve this bug as a duplicate. Thanks for the report!
