Can you please confirm what Xamarin version have you been using when hitting this issue? (My guess is that it was 4.1.x).
I'm moving this report to milestone C7 for visibility.
Thanks for the info.
We already have a fix for this issue, and it will be public on the next Preview refresh.
Thanks for the report!
I have checked this issue with C7 build of XVS i.e. XVS 126.96.36.1992 and observed that this issue has been fixed i.e. now user is able to build and create ipa successfully.
Hey guys, I'me getting exactly the same "AssemblyName yyyy-MM-dd HH-mm-ss" issue, but on Xamarin Studio running on a Mac (version details below).
That also broke our jenkins script.
Can someone help me undertand which version has this fix?

As of the current Stable release (at the time of writing this), this issue still exists and is breaking automated deployments via Atlassian Bamboo.
Is there an ETA for Stable, or at least a work-around, barring using a Preview release?
This issue is definitely not fixed. Please change the Status. Attempting a build with an IPA produces the "The "CopyFileToWindows" task failed unexpectedly." error. This issue shows up even with the latest from the Alpha channel.
The IPA creation is process is absolutely necessary because Apple now requires applications build with sdk 9.0 or later to be packaged as proper IPA files.
