Case #23141
Using VS 2010, Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1 and an Android project with a few layout axml files. When trying to open any of them, the error message in the summary title appears with nothing showing in the source tab or just the XML shown.

Attached is one of the axml files. 

Have attempted
1) A replacement dll (provided by Xamarin) and copying it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Xamarin\Mono for Android\4.4.54. And making a copy of the old one.
2) Starting a new instance of Visual Studio, attaching the devenv.exe under processes and copied output.

The output is attached to this bug file
