Got the following error while trying to create a completely new Xamarin.Forms project in VS2015:
Severity Code Description Project File Line
Warning Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load assembly 'TestApp, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken='. Perhaps it doesn't exist in the Mono for Android profile? TestApp.Droid

I have tried to uninstall and reinstall Xmarin but receive the same error and issue unable to create a new solution and states the the name regardless of being new has already been created and when I try to open the said solution will not open it either.
you shouldn't be seeing this error in latest alpha build.
I will mark this as a duplicate of an older bug about this same "Could not load assembly" _warning_.
Note that this message can also appear as an _error_. I have filed a separate bug about improving the wording of the _error_ in Bug 40782.
