Created attachment 15988 [details]
Xamarin.Forms v2.0.0.6482.txt

I have VS 2015 update 2.

I created a new solution: Blank App (Xamarin.Forms Portable)
and after it finishes laying out the devices projects.
and checking the Xamarin.Forms that comes with VS 2005 u2, its: v2.0.0.6482

I Compile it with the:
Menu Tools\Options\Projects and Solutions\Build and Run\MSBuild project build output verbosity: Detailed

and without adding any nugets or references, i have conflicts between dlls, as you can search for the string "There was a conflict between" in the attached file:
Xamarin.Forms v2.0.0.6482.txt

Then i went to nuget for the entire solution and updated the "" for all projects to the latest stable version: v2.2.0.31

Then i compiled it, and also got conflicts in dlls, as you can see them in the attached file:
Xamarin.Forms v2.2.0.31.txt

Both files are in the this link:

An actual reproduction solution would be helpful here to see what the result is on another machine. Have you tried removing all of the Forms packages, adding them again (preferably with newer versions) and cleaning/rebuilding?

Thanks, You can see the test project in this link:

and if you open the "Output-Build.zip" file, and search  for "There was a conflict", you have at least two of them.

Comment 3 E.Z. Hart [MSFT] 2016-07-11 17:06:25 UTC
This appears to be happening because of a reference to MonoAndroid's mscorlib in the default Android project in the "New Project" template.

Still happening as of

I'm not sure this is actually a problem, though. In both cases, the conflict is resolved by the build system and there doesn't seem to be a problem at runtime.
