Description Peter Collins 2017-04-26 16:07:20 UTC
I'm encountering a new msbuild error related to an old assembly we've been using in the same way for a while now. This behavior has been recently introduced, as I am unable to reproduce using mono and earlier. I can reproduce this from both the command line and in VSMac.

>  /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/5.0.0/lib/mono/msbuild/15.0/bin/Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets(1980,5):
> warning MSB3246: Resolved file has a bad image, no metadata, or is otherwise inaccessible. Could not find file "/Users/peter/git/QualityAssurance/Automation/XQA/XQA.Core/libs\libbz.dll". 
## Steps to reproduce ##
1. git clone git@github.com:xamarin/QualityAssurance
2. nuget restore QualityAssurance/Automation/XQA/XQA.sln
3. msbuild QualityAssurance/Automation/XQA/XQA.sln
