I need to use FSharp 4 , so I installed the nuget FSharp.Core v126.96.36.199 .
Then I have the problem mentionned here: http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/comment/212937
MSBuild seems to be using an incorrect .Net Framework version.
So in "General Settings", I unckeched "Use MSBuild ...".
In the build log we can see that XBuild is called with:
-r:"C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\MonoAndroid\v1.0\FSharp.Core.dll"
A workaround could be replacing FSharp DLLs in C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\MonoAndroid\v1.0\ by DLLs extracted in ./packages .
It's compiling !
Now I plug my phone on my computer and it try to deploy my app on it (hoping to finally debug) ...
BUT, no APK is generated by XBuild and deploying on devices doesn't work ...
# Steps to reproduce
1. Create a Xamarin.Forms app with F#
2. Install FSharp.Core v188.8.131.52 from Nuget
3. Build the project

This scenario works for me. I'm able to build and deploy the attached project using the latest Alpha builds XA 220.127.116.11 with XS 6.1 (5298) on Windows. You'll need to add the FSharp.Core NuGet to the Forms library project as shown in the repro I've attached.
Are you able to reproduce with the attached project? Am I missing a step?
You added FSharp.Core NuGet only in the PCL project.
In my case, I want to use FSharp 4 in Android project too.
Try to compile with:
1 - In PCL:
type App() =
let stack = StackLayout(VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center)
let label = Label(XAlign = TextAlignment.Center, Text = "Welcome to F# Xamarin.Forms!")
base.MainPage <- ContentPage(Content = stack)
let text = "coucou"
if isNull text
2 - In Android:
[<Activity (Label = "Forms42986.Droid", Icon = "@drawable/icon", MainLauncher = true, ConfigurationChanges = (ConfigChanges.ScreenSize ||| ConfigChanges.Orientation))>]
type MainActivity() =
override this.OnCreate (bundle: Bundle) =
Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Init (this, bundle)
this.LoadApplication (new Forms42986.App ())
let text = "coucou"
if isNull text
I tested on 3 computers, it always failed.

failing test case
Oh my mistake, thanks for the info. I've updated the test case which now fails with the following. I am also able to reproduce the same failure with this project on Mac.
> FSC : error FS0219: The referenced or default base CLI library 'mscorlib' is binary-incompatible with the referenced F# core library 'C:\Users\xamarinqa\Desktop\Forms42986\packages\FSharp.Core.18.104.22.168\lib\portable-net45+monoandroid10+monotouch10+xamarinios10\FSharp.Core.dll'. Consider recompiling the library or making an explicit reference to a version of this library that matches the CLI version you are using.

@Romain are these the same errors you're seeing?
Yes I have:

Thank you very much for your help
If you add a reference to mscorlib in your `*Droid.fsproj` does that resolve the issue?
> <Reference Include="mscorlib" />
Yes, it works.
I was going to update the templates to do this but I get 2 warnings :-
FSC: warning FS0217: The referenced or default base CLI library 'mscorlib' is binary-incompatible with the referenced library '/Users/jason/Projects/bug42986/Droid/../packages/Xamarin.Forms.184.108.40.206/lib/MonoAndroid10/FormsViewGroup.dll'. Consider recompiling the library or making an explicit reference to a version of this library that matches the CLI version you are using.
FSC: warning FS0217: The referenced or default base CLI library 'mscorlib' is binary-incompatible with the referenced library '/Users/jason/Projects/bug42986/bug42986/bin/Debug//bug42986.dll'. Consider recompiling the library or making an explicit reference to a version of this library that matches the CLI version you are using.
The app works fine when deployed on Android (all requests for mscorlib are redirected to use version 220.127.116.11) but the F# compiler complains. The C# compiler seems to just ignore this scenario.
So not sure what to do about this. I could add a `--nowarn FS2017` as the warning seems innocuous, but then that would mask potential genuine errors.
