Description Matthew Orlando 2015-12-08 23:26:15 UTC
Our project started out supporting iOS 7+, so we created all of the necessary launch images. We decided to remove support for iOS 7, and since 8+ can all use launch storyboards, we removed LaunchImage from the asset catalog, and all references to it from Info.plist and the iOS project file.

Even after doing Build-Clean, we continue to get the warning:

> 1>C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\iOS\Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets(985,3): warning : The launch image set "LaunchImage" has 5 unassigned children.

I have scoured our source tree (and all the intermediate dirs) for any reference to LaunchImage and it's all clean. The only thing I can think is that it got left behind on the OSX host and is still being referenced for some reason (I see several copies of LaunchImage.launchimage scattered throughout ~/Library/Caches/Xamarin/mtbs/builds/<myProject>)

If I check out the project on OSX and build with Xamarin Studio instead, the warning isn't there. It's only when I build from VS.

I can try reproducing with a new project if need be.

After making an ostensibly unrelated change (to the storyboard), the warning is no longer appearing. I assume whatever I did invalidated the badly-cached item.
Comment 2 Matthew Orlando 2015-12-09 17:39:48 UTC
I stand corrected. The warning is still appearing for the first build after a clean.

Hi Matthew, it would be great if you could provide a sample solution with some repro steps so we can try to reproduce the issue on our side. Thanks, Adrian

Apparently this issue has cleared up some time in the last few months. I am not seeing this on the current beta channel.
