Description Chris Hamons 2016-10-20 20:15:53 UTC
New XM Project

will keep invoking mmp over and over again because of this:

Target _CompileToNative needs to be built as output file 'bin/Debug/TimerTest.app/Contents/MacOS/TimerTest.exe' does not exist.

We generate Contents/MonoBundle/TestTimer.exe not Contents/MacOS/TimerTest.exe

Also XI apparently:

	Target _CompileToNative needs to be built as input file '/Users/donblas/Projects/TimerTestIOS/TimerTestIOS/bin/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/TimerTestIOS.exe' is newer than output file 'bin/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/TimerTestIOS.app/TimerTestIOS'
