Log file after initial crash
It seems if a user doesn't run Workbooks before trying to open a *.workbook file, it will crash because a first-run initialization isn't fired.
1. Downloaded MSI from link found here: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/workbooks/install/
2. Installed Workbooks
3. Downloaded "Try Azure for WPF" Workbook from here: https://developer.xamarin.com/workbooks/
4. Double-clicked downloaded "TryAzure-WPF.workbook" file
5. Workbooks launched and crashed: "Workbook failed to load" and "Please see log for details."
Log (see attached for full output):
> [Error][00:00:00.2781326] OpenWorkbook (OpenWorkbook): exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.CodeAnalysis, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
File name: 'Microsoft.CodeAnalysis, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35'
I wanted to get the Workbooks version for this bug, so I ran it separately to see if it would give me a chance to find it. Doing so started up some sort of initialization routine.
After this init routine ran, I could open the prior .workbook file fine.
This should be fixed in the 1.3 series.
