Description John Hair 2017-12-15 10:13:22 UTC
Using VS2017 15.4.5
.netstandard 2.0 XF solution

When running Live Player on Samsung SM-G950F without live player, app starts but throws an exception when running Build() on the AutoFac ContainerBuilder() instance. Code for preparing the container:

        private void PrepareContainer(IModule[] platformSpecificModules)
            var builder = new Autofac.ContainerBuilder();
            //RegisterPlatformSpecificModules(platformSpecificModules, builder);
            _container = builder.Build(); --< Crashes here

The exception is:
Visualization Error
No body on method System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable'1<AutoFac.Core.IComponentRegistration>

Fails even when not registering anything for DI. works fine when app run on device as normal, however.

Sample Project
Comment 2 James Montemagno [MSFT] 2017-12-16 19:17:20 UTC
Reproduced and added sample.

If you add a different page and do Live Run for that page that doesn't have AutoFac that seems to work. So adding the nuget is okay, but the registration doesn't work.
