The repro project works successfully for me on a mac (prints "en" then "ef" as the expected behavior describes), so looks like its probably an issue with Visual Studio
@Timothy indeed, I could reproduce the error in visual studio as well. When I build on the mac everything behaves as expected.
Thank you for reporting this. We are currently investigating this and will keep you updated.
Any update? We can't release an update to our app without a fix on this
Fixed in version 188.8.131.52 (master)
Commit: 94a6b858fc9d6d5443cf03ac0348d612dbb6eaf8 (xamarin/XamarinVS)
I'm sorry you're facing this bug. We've already fixed it and it will be available on our next release. In the meantime, you can workaround it by following these steps:
1- On Windows, got to "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin".
2- Open the Xamarin.Apple.Sdk.targets file in an editor with Administrator privileges.
3- Look for the CopyFilesToMacOutputDirectory target.
4- After the last _CopyFilesToMacOutput (line 95) add the following:
<_CopyFilesToMacOutput Include="@(EmbeddedResource -> '$(OutDir)%(Culture)\$(TargetName).resources.dll')" Condition="'%(EmbeddedResource.WithCulture)' == 'true'">
For anyone else interested on this workaround, in case you're using Visual Studio 2017 on step 1 you should go to "<VS installation folder>\MSBuild\Xamarin" (for instance "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Preview\Enterprise\MSBuild\Xamarin")
Hello @Alexandre Pepin,
Can you provide proper steps or description with expectation for verify this bug.
See my initial report and sample project. If you run the project, it is supposed to print "en" then "fr" in the console
I can confirm that the workaround works. Thanks!
