Description David Karlaš 2017-03-09 16:25:52 UTC
Created attachment 20250 [details]
sample project

Repro steps:
Download attached project(or create your own F# project and add embedded resource)
1) inside terminal navigate to fsharpFailsToEmbedResources.sln file
2) run `msbuild`
3) run `xbuild /t:Rebuild`
4) compare parameters passed to fcs.exe, msbuild is missing `--resource:obj/x86/Debug/FSharpBinding.addin.xml`

Command `monodis --presources fsharpFailsToEmbedResources/bin/Debug/fsharpFailsToEmbedResources.exe` can be used to verify that output .exe doesn't have resource inside.

Suggested a workaround to David, so changing from `blocker` to `normal`. I have a fix that needs some work and testing.

Without applying a workaround it is not possible to run new F# projects that use Xamarin.Forms currently because the .xaml files are not added as embedded resources in the compiled assemblies. Switching to xbuild is OK.

Looking at the compiler parameters, whilst the .xaml files are identified as EmbeddedResources, the parameters passed to Fsc do not include any --resource parameters. 




No --resource parameters.

This was tested with VSMac and using the Xamarin.Forms 2.3.4 NuGet package.

The workaround is to change EmbeddedResource to AdditionalEmbeddedResource in the .fsproj.
