I get this error when building any new project.

Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load assembly 'My_App, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken='. Perhaps it doesn't exist in the Mono for Android profile?	My_App.Droid			

No idea what it means.

I will tentatively mark this bug as a duplicate of a new bug I have filed for one common cause of this _error_.

Note that this same message can also appear as an ignorable _warning_: Bug 23210.

If you can still replicate the original issue as reported in Comment 0 and neither the duplicate bug nor Bug 23210 matches the behavior you are seeing, then please reopen this bug report after attaching at least one (and preferably both) of the following:

- A zipped up minimal test case that demonstrates the error.

- The diagnostic MSBuild output, as described on https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/android/troubleshooting/troubleshooting/#Diagnostic_MSBuild_Output
