Description Alexey Bogdanov 2015-04-03 06:43:14 UTC
After I updated VS Extension and Xamarin.iOS to latest version now I cannot build WatchKit apps from Visual Studio.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Create empty WatchKit app in VS.
2) Try to clean or build the solution.

Expected result:
The solution is cleaned or built.

Actual result:
Error: The "Microsoft.Build.Tasks.MakeDir" task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\iOS\Xamarin.iOS.Tasks.dll.  Confirm that the <UsingTask> declaration is correct, that the assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contains a public class that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask.
