Description michael 2016-05-02 08:23:56 UTC
Building an iOS app at the moment and added version of the Google Maps component for iOS. After doing so, I've tried to compile code and get the following error (i've used obscured some of the folder names with "...")

Unpacking failed. Please download 'https://www.gstatic.com/cpdc/c0e534927c0c955e-GoogleMaps-1.11.1.tar.gz' and extract it to the 'C:\...\...\...\packages\.xbcache\GMaps-1.11.1' directory and create an empty file called 'C:\...\...\..\packages\.xbcache\GMaps-1.11.1.unpacked'

Followed the instructions by extracting the contents of that file to the specifed directory and creating an empty file called GMaps-1.11.1.unpacked through notepad. Compilation still fails with the error


I've checked the folder structure and it doesn't match but there is another tar file. The structure of the contents match but extraction leads to some access denied errors due to symbolic links and would result in another build error if the contents are place in the C:\...\...\...\packages\.xbcache\GMaps-1.11.1

Native linking error: file not found: /Users/BtrOffice/Library/Caches/Xamarin/mtbs/builds/.../582d7bb36712546a7af33690f491ff80/obj/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/mtouch-cache/GoogleMaps

Forgot to add that the code is being built through Visual Studio 2015

Thanks for the report.  

Please try to upgrade the Xamairn.Build.Download to that latest beta.


This is a workaround.

I still have the same build problem with Xamarin.Build.Download 0.2.2-beta1.

Do you happen to have Google Analytics installed as well?  I fixed a bug in analytics late last week that was causing the GoogleMaps file to not be written correctly.  

Please update all Xamarin.Google.iOS.* NuGets to their latest version.  Also the 0.2.2-beta1 version of Xamarin Build Download should not be needed.  You should downgrade to 0.2.1.
