Creating a new Xamarin.Forms (Portable) solution.

I tried to create a new Xamarin.Forms (Portable) solution in VS2015 on Windows 10 and received the following error:

Warning		Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load assembly 'App1, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken='. Perhaps it doesn't exist in the Mono for Android profile?	App1.Droid		


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Start VS2015 (ensure that VS2015 has been paired with a running Mac Build host)
2. Go File  > New Project
3. Select Blank App (Xamarin.Forms Portable) and click OK
4. See attached screenshot for results of new project.

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.
