Description K K 2017-07-31 09:00:21 UTC
When I am trying to build my Xamarin.Forms project on iOS while running it shows the following error

Metadata file '..\..\packages\Microsoft.Net.Native.Compiler.1.6.2\tools\Packages\Microsoft.NETNative.Analyzer\1.0.0\analyzers\dotnet\cs\NativeGatekeeper.dll' could not be found	XamarinExamples.iOS

Please, help to solve this bug.

We will need a reproduction project in order to move forward with this. In the meantime you might want to try cleaning and rebuilding the project (after deleting bin/obj folders) and see if that helps. Also, does this occur on any new project or only this one in question?

Getting this error for all the projects not for only this project.

I did the clean and rebuild(deleting bin/obj folders) process but it won't work for me, Is there any other solution for this problem statement?

Please make certain that your VS installation is up to date and all necessary Xamarin components are up to date. I would be led to believe this is not specifically a Forms issue, but please let us know what occurs as of the present.

Marking as no response for now as there have not been further comments for some time now. If this is still an issue with the latest versions of VS/Forms, please reopen with a reproduction project for further investigation. Thanks!
