Comment 3 Parmendra Kumar 2016-11-25 07:16:13 UTC
I have checked this issue with latest X.F 2.3.4-pre1 and observed that this issue doesn't fixed completely. I have checked this issue on VS and XS. To verify this issue I have followed duplicate bug #44807

1. On XS I am still getting same issue.

2. On VS I am getting error only UWP,WindowsPhone environment.

Hence closing this issue.

Comment 7 Stephane Delcroix 2017-01-11 12:10:42 UTC
Please make sure:

 - that you updated the XF package in ALL projects of your solution,
 - that you cleaned the solution, and removed the obj/ and bin/ folder,
 - that you restarted your IDE (so the new Tasks assembly is loaded),
 - that you rebuild, and it now works.

Confirmed - if I update to the latest nightly, clean the solution, manually delete the bin and obj folders, and restart VS, it works.
