Hey! Are you still running into this issue? If possible, could you share with us a zipped project of a way to reproduce this issue (just so we are using the same xib/nib file here) and also to confirm that this is currently happening with the latest release.
@karthikeyanv I don't understand step 5. Are you manually copying the assembly from windows to the mac? Our builds are not expected to work while disconnected from the mac agent, specially for resources. Resources need some mac tools to run for them to be properly compiled, and we use the mac agent for that. We don't do resources in windows.
@joaquin Jares If we connected mac agent, this problem not occur. But My issue is "without connect mac agent" and get the custom library, run time exception occurring.
I don't understand step 5. My custom library have nib file, if we add the custom library to any other application and used the nib in custom view of application. This issue is occurring.
The thing is you can't build a custom library with a nib disconnected to the Mac. That's not a scenario that we support. The nib file is created by a tool that runs on the mac. So it's expected that you will have an exception in that case. We only compile disconnected for you to have intellisense support without a mac, but running an app without a mac is not something we expect or support.
