Comment 1 Pierce Boggan [MSFT] 2016-09-13 15:21:47 UTC
Also can confirm I've hit this issue, though I already wiped my machine so don't have any logs/repro info besides saying "I've hit this".
Comment 2 Manuel de la Peña [MSFT] 2016-09-14 08:14:35 UTC
Hello,

Please include your full build logs, crash reports (if any), 
test case (to reproduce) and all version informations.

The easiest way to get exact version information is to use the 
"Xamarin Studio" menu, "About Xamarin Studio" item, "Show Details" 
button and copy/paste the version informations (you can use the 
"Copy Information" button).

Nevertheless this looks like an issue in the VS component and not in the iOS one per se.
Comment 3 Ben Beckley 2016-09-14 21:23:14 UTC
This sounds like an MEF Component Cache issue.

Please delete the contents of this folder on your Windows machine, restart Visual Studio, and then try again
>C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\ComponentModelCache
Comment 4 Daniel Cazzulino 2016-09-30 13:48:59 UTC
Hi there!
 
I've put together a build on top of current stable (4.2.0.695) that should fix this issue: http://xvs.xamarin.com/patcheddrops/Xamarin.VisualStudio_4.2.0.698.msi

It will also be included in all future releases.

Please do reopen if you see this happen again in the future.

Thanks for reporting the issue!
Comment 7 Mohit Kheterpal 2016-11-02 19:00:36 UTC
As discussed with Daniel, we do not have specific repro steps for this issue. 

@Mike James, It would be helpful if could you please check this issue with the fixed build provided in comment 4?

thanks
Comment 8 Luis Aguilera 2016-11-14 15:55:48 UTC
We believe we have addressed the problem reported in this bug, in spite of not having a clear reproducible case. We have made code changes, and completed regression testing and no subsequent issues were identified. So we will close this bug as resolved for the time being.

This fix was included in the C8SR1 release which shipped to stable on November 11. 

Please feel free to reopen this bug if you should still encounter problems with the C8SR1 release.
