Description Liza Charalambous 2017-11-14 16:11:51 UTC
Hi all,

I'm very new to this so please bear with me. I am building a PLC app for Android and iOS, mainly testing with Android through VS2015. I am now trying to test the app with an iPhone through a virtualised Mac but it fails to build. The app used to build find a couple of weeks ago. I attach the full build log and at the end of this comment, I have the details of my VS installation. 

Any tips on how to resolve this are very much appreciated. I am sensing that it is an incompatibility issue between the versioning of Xamarin.iOS with something else but I cannot quite pinpoint.

Many thanks in advance,

Liza

Hello, it does look like you have an old version of Xamarin installed. You have version 10.12.3.3 while current stable is Version: 11.7.0.21. Please update your Xamarin version and re-try compiling the application. 

If you have issues please feel free to reopen the bug.
