1) Delete the 'obj' and 'bin' directories from your project.
2) Alter a '.xaml' file
3) The task fails with this error:
Fix: Add a mkdir to the forms '.targets' file so the output directory is created before xamlg itself is invoked.
I have checked this issue and I am able to reproduce this issue.
Steps I followed:
1. Create a Blank App ( Xamarin.Forms Portable)
2. Delete the "obj" and "bin" file of newly created project
3. Add new Forms ContentPage Xaml page.
When I add a xml page to the portable project I observed that I am getting following error:
"Error: Unknown MSBuild failure. Please try building the project again".
I am getting same error with both project "Blank App (Xamarin.Forms Portable)" and "Blank App ( Xamarin.Forms Shared)"
