# Test environment (full version information)

Microsoft .NET Framework
Installed Version: Professional
Xamarin 188.8.131.527 (deffc90)

Any update on this? We can't upgrade to Xamarin 4 without it.
When can we expect a fix or workaround?
## Verification status: verified fixed on Cycle 6 – Service Release 1
I tested the "Sample Solution" from Comment 0 using the current Stable versions in both the "Debug|iPhoneSimulator" and "Debug|iPhone" configurations. The build now completes without error, and the `CautionBanner.jpg` file is present at the correct `obj/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/Images/CautionBanner.jpg` location.
