Screenshot of the error.
First compilation of the project worked fine, but after an access violation in the application, and a recompile (to add in a null check), this error came out:
with the error:
Unexpected Error - Please fill a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: Malformed Name (XA0000)
This error appeared on the "<ScanAssemblies" line
The only thing slightly different is the Output location of two attached libraries, which were set to:
This location exists, and the DLL's are output to here.
I didn't make any platform changes, they were left on the default of 2.2 Froyo, and the project did install the platform and run on an XVGA 1280x800 Atom x86 emulator first time.
Restarting Xamarin Studio allowed me to continue working.
however,every second compilation of the project does this error and I need to restart Xamarin Studio.
Please provide a copy of the project.
During the process of making a bug version (with all other projects removed), I discovered the immediate cause of the issue. The folder the project was kept in has a comma in the name.
If the project is contained in folder: "1. Blank (PC)", then it compiles fine every time.
If the project is contained in folder: "1. Blank (PC, iOS)", then it compiles fine once, but then thereafter there is the described packaging failure.
I have tried combinations of these, with the full stop, with/without the brackets etc.., and it's the comma causing the problem.
