I get the above error ONLY when creating an archive if I have the selected the "Embed assemblies into native code" option.
The archiving process works fine in the previous version 7.2
Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2015
Version 14.0.25431.01 Update 3
Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.6.01055
Xamarin 220.127.116.115 (70f1268)
Xamarin.Android 18.104.22.168 (bc24645)
Xamarin.iOS 10.10.0.35 (4cffddf)
Platform: Windows 8.1
Are you able to provide diagnostic build output for the above issue?
I suspect this is a duplicate of Bug #56786
I have updated to the latest stable version and the archiving works fine.
Thanks Andrew , I'll close this as fixed then :)
