Description Paul Johnson 2015-02-04 17:40:27 UTC
I have an iOS app created on XS on my mac. Due to having some issues with XS, I've moved onto the PC to work on the project in VS2013 professional (I think it is). I'm on the beta branch.

When I try to load the project, I am getting an error that the element <#text> is not recognised under the element <ItemGroup> with nothing else anywhere to show. Looking at the csproj file is not showing anything too untoward. 

The app fails to load in XS with some UUIDs not being recognised (though this one seems to be fixed and will be in a new version of XS)

I am unable to reproduce this Issue. I have created a unified single view template application in XS on mac then I open it in VS on Windows. It opens successfully even build and deployed successfully.
