IDE log, IDE svclog and monodroid log


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

I have zipped and attached 3 logs (IDE, IDE svc and monodroid) to this post to help with the diagnostics.

Please let me know if more information is required.

Does the Cycle 8 release resolve this bug? 

Thank you.

I have solved the issue.

What I did was to close Visual studio.
Delete all the /bin and /obj directories for all the PCL projects.

Start VS and build the projects again and the issue is gone now.

Not sure if this qualifies as the "proper" solution but hope it helps someone.
