Description Miguel Angel Martin Hernández 2017-02-05 18:11:46 UTC
I have a docker container with Ubuntu/ Jenkins/ mono-complete and I'm trying to build a Xamarin Android project.
In Jenkins I have MSBuild path = /usr/lib/mono/4.5/xbuild.exe

And when I start the build, I have the error
/usr/lib/mono/4.5/xbuild.exe: 1: /usr/lib/mono/4.5/xbuild.exe: MZ����@���: not found
/usr/lib/mono/4.5/xbuild.exe: 2: /usr/lib/mono/4.5/xbuild.exe: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")

Thank you so much.

We deprecated xbuild and recommend using msbuild instead. Switching to msbuild will also most likely resolve the issue you reported.
