Possible duplicate of bug #20411
Comment 2 Alan McGovern 2014-07-09 23:28:46 UTC
This looks like your Visual Studio and Xamarin.iOS are out of sync. The real exception is hidden by XamarinVS (cc'ing kzu for the dependent bug) so it's hard to know for sure.

I can see that person has Xamarin.iOS 7.2.5.5 but i don't know what version of the VS stuff they have, but it's probably an incompatible version. Daniel, can you figure out what version of the VS stuff they have and can you check if it is actually compatible with Xamarin.iOS 7.2.5.5 for the purposes of the iOS Designer?
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2014-07-09 23:29:25 UTC
Oh, i just saw it was '3.1.215.0'. I don't know if this is compatible or not though and I don't have access to a windows machine to check.
Comment 4 Alan McGovern 2014-08-05 16:57:42 UTC
I presume this was just incompatible versions of XamarinVS and MonoTouch. I cannot reproduce this. If further information is provided and it does not work with newer builds, please reopen the bug.
