I installed xamarin.ios on our build server. My goal is not to install visual studio on this machine and only use msbuild as I do for all my build server projects. However the xamarin.ios build has a dependency on following msbuild targets file:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\Microsoft.Common.Targets\ImportAfter\Xamarin.Common.targets
This file seems to be installed by the xamarin visual studio plugin installer only. It should be installed by the xamarin.ios installer instead.
You should be able to use our msi and install the Xamarin.iOS SDK but not any VS plugin, and build successfully from the command line.
There were already some improvements on that experience, and this scenario should be supported in our current stable build (XVS 4.0.4).
I'm marking the bug as resolved, but please feel free to reopen it if you're still facing issues on this scenario, and share your environment info and a diagnostic build output.
