Are we to expect the sample projects listed on the "Embedded Frameworks" page at http://developer.xamarin.com/guides/ios/advanced_topics/embedded_frameworks can be compiled in Xamarin for Visual Studio?
I am using Xamarin 18.104.22.1689 in Visual Studio, and when I try to compile the simpleapp-with-framework.csproj, a project in the solutions downloaded from https://github.com/rolfbjarne/embedded-frameworks, I get the error during compile:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\iOS\Xamarin.iOS.ObjCBinding.CSharp.targets(88,3): error : Tool exited with code: 255. Output:"
Line 88 in this file is where the "Zip" action runs inside the "_CompressFrameworks" build target.
Is it possible the bug is that the compression tool "zip" cannot be found for some reason, when compiling from Visual Studio? Where does the path "/usr/bin/zip" to the zip file get expressed for the build to find and run it, when run from Visual Studio?
That could be the case. The IDE support (both XS and VS) for the feature was not complete for 4.0 (C6, it's a C7 target) so it was not tested on Windows.
Will this be fixed? I'm still seeing this on stable C7(22.214.171.124).
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.
