When trying to create a new blank Forms Shared project I am met with the following dialog and the Android project is not created.
Using VS 2017 RC2 and XVS 126.96.36.1999
env info: https://gist.github.com/BenBeckley/aad3dd82bc5a3c923135b5238d620a82
I cannot repro with VS build d15rel/26014.
Are you sure you are doing Blank app->Forms->Shared? If so, how many projects do you get created? Maybe there is some other dependency that's causing this. I get iOS, Android and shared project.
I tried this too and I'm also not getting a repro.
Marking this bug as not reproducible since Victor and Joaquin were not able to reproduce it.
My apologies for not replying to this sooner. I am reopening this bug because I am hitting it again, but with slightly different conditions than the original report.
When creating a new Blank Native Shared project I am getting the dialog, and the Android project is being created successfully unlike the original description. I have attached a recording to clear any uncertainties.
1) Start VS2017
2) Select File>New Project
3) Create a new Blank Native Shared Cross-Platform app
Actual Result: This dialog pops up, http://screencast.com/t/inwAYLzwka
Expected Result: There should be no dialog
environment info: https://gist.github.com/BenBeckley/63f522b4a3bd5a1aef8ab4fc70ee325a
I've tried to repro the issue without luck, using exactly the same version from your screencast.
Looking into the templates, I can see that file exists in my setup, and it's located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\Common7\IDE\Extensions\rx0xrxsm.dcz\T\P\CSharp\Cross-Platform\Native.Shared.Template.zip\Native.Shared.Template.iOS\Resources\Images.xcassets\LaunchImage.launchimage
The extension subfolder (rx0xrxsm.dcz) can change, you might need to look for the one that includes the Xamarin.Forms.Templates.VisualStudio.dll , pdb and pkdef.
The Native.Shared.Template.zip is a zip file, and the rest of the path is the content of that file.
1) Can you please check if you have the file there?
2) Does the project build after unfolding? (assuming the file exists).
3) What version of the Templates is installed on that system? (it should be 0.5.130).
I can guess some potential causes for this issue in your environment, but we need to confirm:
- It has an older Templates vsix for some reason.
- A timing issue unfolding the template, which makes VS to perform the check before the file has been unfolded (which can be the case if the answer for q1 and q2 is YES).
1) That file is located in the respective location.
>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\Common7\IDE\Extensions\4rjgfvz4.tiv\T\P\CSharp\Cross-Platform\Native.Shared.Template.zip\Native.Shared.Template.iOS\Resources\Images.xcassets\LaunchImage.launchimage
2) Both projects build after unfolding.
3) Yes, Xamarin.Forms Templates is v0.5.130
The templates completely changed. I'm marking this as resolved for retesting.
As per comment8, changing the bug status to verified fixed.
Reopening as I am still seeing this with the Blank Native template.

Discussed with Pierce and Joaquin.
@joj, @ben and @pierce can't repro with latest bits, hence closing the issue.
Reopening as I am encountering this with a Blank->Native->Shared app using VS2017 26317.55, XVS 188.8.131.52 (8e30194d3), and Xamarin.Forms.Templates 0.5.285
env info: https://gist.github.com/BenBeckley/23016bbdfbee9ff5844eec785dfc56b9
Created attachment 20475 [details]
zipped logs for comment 12
I am also increasing the severity as this is now regarded as a build error.
Realized that the milestone was still C9 when I opened this. Changing to 15.1
Also encountering this with a Master Detail Native Shared app.
