Does this behavior change when only switching XA versions? I'm wondering if this issue could have been introduced by changes in XS.
What happens if you install all stable builds and then only upgrade XS to 6.0 and test this behavior?
I'm a bit confused by the last comment Rajneesh, does this failure also occur with Stable XA and C7 XS installed?
Hi @ Peter
>>does this failure also occur with Stable XA and C7 XS installed?
There are a bunch of activation issues which look like they're causing the issue. I would test again with the updates to the branches and the activation changes.
Looking at the log, and this bit in particular.

we can see that you end up with Starter edition. Then looking at the code in ActivationReason and we can see that Stater is not valid edition at this point
> (int)MinimumEdition <= (int)XamarinEdition.Starter
So, given that we have made radical changes to activation, I think that we should re-test this the latest builds from C7 and / or master.

It would be nice if we could see Resource.designer.fs:65, but probably not relevant.
What I believe is the relevant difference between Xamarin.Android 6.0 (Cycle 6) and 6.1 (Cycle 7) that would impact F# generation is that FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom.dll was upgraded from 0.9.2 to 0.9.4, which was done in monodroid/cdc1a3b8 to fix Bug #24709.
I would surmise that while 0.9.4 may have fixed one F# generation bug, it presumably introduced another.
However, Xamarin.Android *does* perform some post-processing of F# files, so perhaps that is the problem?
@Peter/@Singh: This can be manually tested by taking a failing build, and replacing the installed FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom.dll file with the version installed with Cycle 6, restarting the IDE, and trying again.
It would likewise be interesting to know if FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom.dll 22.214.171.124 fixes the issue:
Hi Jonathan, I tried to check this issue via adding FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom.dll 126.96.36.199 to the project but but I am not able to do so:
To check this issue I have followed the steps mentioned below:
1. Create a Fsharp Android Project.
2. Add new F# Lib project to this solution.
3. Set reference to Main project.
4. Try Add FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom.dll Version: 188.8.131.52
Please let me know that what I am missing to test this issue. Or what steps should I follow to check this issue ?
Also after updating the package I am getting same behavior.
@Rajneeshk FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom is used by Xamarin.Android itself and not something user app could reference.
I'm asking XS team how I can build or install F# project support addins on Linux (which is required for me to investigate this issue).
Created attachment 16039 [details]
Using the current Beta and the newly attached repro project, the suggested workaround in Comment #9 (of using the FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom.dll shipped with C6SR4) works for me.

Results in the repro case building and deploying successfully.
However, the FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom.dll from the 184.108.40.206 version of the NuGet also results in the same build error reported after moving
The erroneous output? https://gist.github.com/pjcollins/7e1cfb2d99dc61af61b5896179b87b8d#file-gistfile1-txt-L5
> global.LibFSherp.Resource_String.library_name@ <- Resource_Resource_String.library_name@
Sounds like a bug in FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom. :-(
Regardless, there are two options here:
1. We accept this bug (Bug #39520).
2. We go back to FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom 0.9.2, which was distributed with C6SR4.
This *may* reopen Bug #40613 and Bug #24709.
In the absence of fixing FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom (help?), these appear to be the only options.
I'm inclined to go with (2).
Fixed (for cycle7 ONLY) in monodroid/cycle7/75402fb7.
I'm not sure what should be done for master.
Bug #41254 was caused by a new support lib reference in the templates, and is a dupe of Bug #24709.
I'm able to verify the fix for this specific error with the following steps:
1. Create a new 'Modern Development' F# Android App in XS
2. Right click the top value in the solution tree -> Add new project
3. Select Android -> Library -> Class Library (F#)
4. Right click on the App project References -> Edit References
5. Go to the Projects tab, and add a reference to the newly created lib.
