The netstandard wave1 work we did in C7SR1 breaks compilation with roslyn.
1. Create new file Program.cs with:
> using System;
> public class Program
> public static void Main ()
> Console.WriteLine ("Hello World");
2. nuget install Microsoft.Net.Compilers -Version 1.3.2
3. mono Microsoft.Net.Compilers.1.3.2/tools/csc.exe Program.cs
It fails with:
> Microsoft (R) Visual C# Compiler version 188.8.131.52621
> Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
> error CS1504: Source file '/Users/alexander/Desktop/roslyn-bug/Program.cs' could not be opened -- The type initializer for 'Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Text.EncodedStringText' threw an exception.
Fixed with mono master/398320339ca70efdc3c92349a985e73d5a9013fd and mono-4.4.0-branch-c7sr1/43c7daff3987c89dae36bae21ab88779cfdb0340
with build from branch c7sr1/43c7 I got another error:

I will test this with build from master
That's expected, those new assemblies (which csc.exe references by default) were added in C8/master: https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/11640a9e733362fb0a676b8d2b9c08ef2dd8ff8c. They are just dummy assemblies so are not actually used, I only tried the fix with C8 so I didn't notice that, sorry.
In C7SR1 you can pass /noconfig /r:System.dll additionally and it should work after the fix.
Thx for your clarification here.
Build from master works.
Build from C7sr1 works also with /noconfig /r:System.dll
