Description stephen.machwirth 2015-08-06 04:13:07 UTC
Visual studio 2015 crashes when trying to load the forms project. This does not happen if I go back to 1.4.4..
Comment 1 Abhishek 2015-08-06 11:13:34 UTC
I have tried this issue and unable to reproduce the reported behavior at my end.

Steps:

1.Create an Xamarin.Forms PCL application.
2.Update the Xamarin.Forms.Xaml to 1.5.0.6396-pre1.
3.Close the solution and again reload the same application.

I have found that is was only when I opened visual studio and VS is trying to initialize the projects in the solutions. When I manually upgrade in VS itself it doesn't seem to throw me out.
Comment 4 stephen.machwirth 2015-08-07 03:48:58 UTC
So the steps to repdroduce are:
1. upgrade to the beta forms libraries
2. close VS 2015
3. Open VS 2015 -- this is where it's failing and crashes.

Sidenote I have the following other packages installed in this project:

- JSON.NET
- Microsoft BCL Build Components
- Microsoft BCL Compatability pack
- Microsoft HTTP Client libraries
- sqlite-net pcl
- sqlpcl.raw
- WPToolkit
- Xamarin support library v4
- Xamarin forms

All to their latest stable version.
