Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2017-03-13 21:42:37 UTC
*Description:

There have been a couple of reports regarding this warning box in Xamarin for Visual Studio. 

The warning box says "The F# project "{PROJECT NAME.fsproj}" is targeting "{Xamarin.iOS/Xamarin.Android Framework Version}", which is not installed on this machine. To proceed, select an option below.

To which it gives options of:

1) Change the target of the project to .NET Framework 4.6.1 (Which won't help Xamarin projects)

2) Download the targeting pack for "{Xamarin.iOS/Xamarin.Android Framework Version}. The project will not change. (However these targets should be installed already)

3) Do not load the project.

Although I haven't been able to replicate the behavior on the same exact build, this seems problematic in the F# templates only as the C# templates seem to function just fine. The following version information below is the same version information as others who have been able to reproduce this issue.
