Description Philipp Schuster 2015-08-05 08:19:53 UTC
In Visual Studio I have an iOS binding project. I use this project from a regular iOS project. Building this project with "Don't link" works fine. Building with either "Link SDK assemblies only" or "Link all assemblies" fails with:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\iOS\Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets(501,3): error : Could not link assemblies. Reason: Argument is out of range.

This only happens if in the bindings project properties under `Build` the `Optimize code` tick is not set. (Which is the default when doing Debug builds). I would love to attach more information but I do not get more details even with `-v -v -v` as additional mtouch arguments.
