Description Aaron Bockover [MSFT] 2016-12-02 16:39:59 UTC
There is a bug in the Mono implementation of System.IO.Compression.ZipArchive.CreateEntry where it ignores the CompressionLevel argument altogether. It does not translate "NoCompression" into "Store", which means invalid entries get created for zero-byte streams.

Anyway, because of this, I wanted to use the corefx version, available on NuGet, which is entirely managed and does not in turn depend on ICSharpCode.

However, either via the MSBuild targets for mmp, the Xamarin.Mac FX version is always ultimately copied into the .app bundle, effectively clobbering the NuGet version.

This is a "full framework" (desktop) app:

I just confirmed this is also an issue with the supported mobile profile:

This may be at least partially related to bug #48743.

However, if I manually edit the csproj to give System.IO.Compression a correct hint path, we can still see that mmp is given the target framework path for the assembly, and not the NuGet path.

I'm blocking this bug on XS's bug (since mmp isn't even getting the right path to mess up).
Comment 4 Chris Hamons 2016-12-05 22:01:31 UTC
@Abock - Since https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=48743 got close answered, is this still an issue?
Comment 5 Manuel de la Peña [MSFT] 2017-01-03 09:56:57 UTC
@Abock any comments about this? Should we close the bug?
Comment 6 Aaron Bockover [MSFT] 2017-02-07 17:28:54 UTC
I think this can be closed. The System.IO.Compression NuGet targets 4.6. If 4.5 is the target, the hint path is not set by XS, so mmp would have no way to know how to resolve the NuGet version.
