Exception when creating a project on a FAT32 partition
Description of Problem:
When creating a project on a FAT32 partition, getting an error (see attachment).
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create a new project.
2. Select a folder on a FAT32 partition.
Throws an exception.
All files are correctly created, except the .csproj.
Create the project as expected.
How often does this happen?
It is possible to create the project on another partition, and move the created project on the FAT32 partition. This way there is no error, even when re-opening it.
Apparently, in addition to this, Xamarin cannot save files on a FAT32 volume.
Open a file on a FAT32 partition, modify it, save it. No error is thrown and apparently everything is alright.
But now close the file and re-open it. The modification has not been saved.
Thank you Xamarin, I've lost hours of work.
It appears to be lot of bugs when working on a FAT32 partition...
I'm not able either to open a Storyboard in Xcode, it fails saying "project.xcproj" not found, etc.
What's wrong ?
This is probably related to bug #38538.
