Example of "bad" solution explorer (UI language German)

The Asset Catalog entry is not displayed in the Solution Explorer when the Visual Studio UI is set to a language other than English




## Partial temporary workaround: switch the VS UI language to English



1. Install the English language pack from the VS downloads page:
https://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/download-visual-studio-vs


2. Locate the International Settings section in the Visual Studio options.

(https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms246590.aspx#Anchor_1)

German:  Debuggen -> Optionen -> Umgebung -> Internationale Einstellungen

French:  Outils -> Options -> Environnement -> Paramètres internationaux

English: Tools -> Options -> Environment -> International Settings


3. Set the Language to "English" and then restart Visual Studio.




## Regression status: not an immediate regression

GOOD: XamarinVS 4.0.1.89   (413372c) + VS 2015 Update 1 + UI language English


### BAD: Cycle 6, iOS 9.2

BAD:  XamarinVS 4.0.0.1717 (1390b70) + VS 2013 Update 5 + UI language German

BAD:  XamarinVS 4.0.0.1717 (1390b70) + VS 2015 Update 1 + UI language German
BAD:  XamarinVS 4.0.0.1717 (1390b70) + VS 2015 Update 1 + UI language French




## Steps to replicate

1. Run Visual Studio with the UI language set to a non-English option. (See the "workaround" section above, but adjust the instructions to switch _away_ from English.)

2. Create a new "Visual C# -> iOS -> iPhone -> Single View App (iPhone)" app. (Or open an existing iOS app, optionally one that already includes an Asset Catalog.)

3. Look for the Asset Catalog in the Solution Explorer.




## Results

The Asset Catalog icon is missing from the Solution Explorer.

There does not seem to be any alternate way to access the graphical asset catalog editor.
