Info.plist which has some of the errant bits in it.
I'm not sure if this is in MT, or MD.
I've tried it with MD 3 (yay!) and MT 5.2.11 and 5.3.latest. Same in both cases.
When I try to edit the iPhone properties (bundle version, name etc - all the stuff out of Info.plist), I get the exception below.
I can edit the plist in xcode fine.
I've attached the plist file to this, too.
System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.InvalidCastException: Cannot cast from source type to destination type.

Strangely enough, another project works fine.... Attached it's plist.
Created attachment 1871 [details]
From a quick look at the Info.plist you attached, it's the "Prerendered Icons" key/value pair that is breaking things. MonoDevelop expects that to be a Boolean value (not a string).
The docs here suggest the value should be of type Boolean:
*HOWEVER* that doesn't mean your Info.plist is wrong, as I've noticed that Apple isn't always consistent with enforcing certain types of values for some of their keys at least.
Assuming that iOS correctly interprets your Info.plist, we should make MonoDevelop handle them too.
This should be an easy fix to make sure that we can handle loading a string value in this case as well as the bool that we expected.
Yes, the plist works as-is in everything except MD. However, I think it was created WITH MD, rather than via xcode... so MD was setting the wrong value maybe?
At least it's an easy fix at my end.
Yup, confirmed, that fixed it. I wonder if it's cos the older MD's didn't have a pre-rendered tick box, but the new one does? It was wrong before, but nothing was checking for it...
We certainly shouldn't display the exception, anyway. I wonder what the best way to display such errors is.
Fixed in git master and the 3.0-series branch to handle string values
