Compile file error


could you help me with the following error:

Error Failed to compile the file(s) '/Users/strela/Library/Caches/Xamarin/mtbs/builds/ESign.iOS/7e1c3571e4de0d7f433e1c1ffe1f7699/obj/iPhoneSimulator/Release/mtouch-cache/i386/main.m'. Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com ESign.iOS

I get this error when trying to build an iOS Xamarin App. What could this error reffer to? Because I tried cleaning the project and also manually cleaning the files on Macbook.

The strange thing is that it works on another Macbook. But I dont have that Mac avaliable all the time.

Can you attach the file the error message mentions, and the complete build log?

I just provided requested files.

Comment 5 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2017-08-18 11:24:24 UTC
Can you try adding "-v" to the additional mtouch arguments in the project's iOS Build options?

I think that will solve the problem.

master: https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/pull/2507
Comment 7 Matej Lubej 2017-08-18 13:11:36 UTC
It works with adding "-v" as you provided.
Comment 8 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2017-08-18 13:13:25 UTC
Reopening since it's still a bug we need to fix (you shouldn't have to add "-v").

The problem is that at one point we write the number -1 to a code file, and since you seem to have a Slovenian locale, that's formatted as "–1", which isn't a valid number (for the compiler).
