Build log

I can't repeat this in an new/empty app. It only happens in the business app I am supporting.

Warning		  These reference conflicts are listed in the build log when log verbosity is set to detailed.	SmartwebsCrossPlatform.Android	C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets	1820	

In the detailed build log I get a lot of project items using mscorlib but only one that uses mscorlib

2>      References which depend on "mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" [].

I tried to create a new project but the error appears again when I add all source files.
I can't add sources by one because they rely on each other heavily.

Is there any way you could provide a copy of the app? You can email to my address, or post here a as a private comment.
Comment 3 Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2017-10-13 18:09:39 UTC


The conflict seems to happen because Mono.Android.dll v1.0 has a reference to mscorlib

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\MonoAndroid\v1.0\mscorlib.dll

Whereas the version comes from a PCL profile / netstandard:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETPortable\v4.5\Profile\Profile7\mscorlib.dll

I'm not able to reproduce this currently. Can you provide a sample project?

Possibly caused by https://github.com/JamesNK/Newtonsoft.Json/issues/1264
Comment 5 anton.duzenko@gmail.com 2017-10-25 09:24:46 UTC
Let's start with System.Net.Http conflicts. Repeatable with the attached project.
