## Steps to reproduce:

Download and Execute Xamarin Installer https://wrench.internalx.com/Wrench/ViewLane.aspx?lane_id=4186&host_id=243&revision_id=841490  using open Install\ Xamarin.app/ --args --force-from-resources --android-manifest-url=http://xqa.blob.core.windows.net/gist/xamarin-android-sdk.xml-8e415a8420e44c6488bcac4056018ea8.xml .

Install products other than Xamarin.Android.

Create a forms iOS template project and build it.
Open .axml file using XAML Viewer

##Actual Behaviour:

## Update to the above comment.

Open .xaml file using XAML viewer, after building the iOS shared project. 

##Supplemental Info:
This issue seems to occur randomly. I created a second iOS forms project and could open the AppPage.xaml in iOS view. But when I tried a second time it failed.
Comment 2 GouriKumari 2017-01-04 14:46:54 UTC
 This is an issue that occurred due to an error in test environment. Hence, closing this bug.
