Creating a new black Xamarin.Forms PCL project, I received this warning.
Warning 3 Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load assembly 'MessageApp, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken='. Perhaps it doesn't exist in the Mono for Android profile? MessageApp.Droid
MessageApp being the solution I created.
Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2013
Version 12.0.31101.00 Update 4
Windows 8.1 Professional 64-bit
Please providee diagnostic build output.
The build process is attempting to find MessageApp.dll, but cannot find it. Is it a missing assembly reference? Something else? I don't know, but diagnostic build output should help:
Cleaning the solution and rebuilding it got rid of the error. I'd mark it as resolved, but having that error everytime I start a Blank PCL Xamarin application, shouldn't happen.
I will mark this as a duplicate of an older bug about this same _warning_.
Note that this message can also appear as an _error_. I have filed a separate bug about improving the wording of the _error_ in Bug 40782.
