When I try to compile a .NET Standard library that references Xamarin.Forms, it fails with this error:
argets(51,3): error MSB4062: The "Xamarin.Forms.Build.Tasks.FixedCreateCSharpManifestResour
ceName" task could not be loaded from the assembly /home/ubuntu/.nuget/packages/xamarin.for
ms/188.8.131.52779/build/netstandard1.0/Xamarin.Forms.Build.Tasks.dll. Could not load file or a
ssembly 'Microsoft.Build.Utilities.v4.0, Version=184.108.40.206, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b
03f5f7f11d50a3a'. The system cannot find the file specified. [/home/ubuntu/Ooui/Ooui.Forms/
argets(51,3): error MSB4062: Confirm that the <UsingTask> declaration is correct, that the
assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contains a public class
that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask. [/home/ubuntu/Ooui/Ooui.Forms/Ooui.Forms.
This seems to be related to: https://github.com/Microsoft/msbuild/issues/2111
I believe it is fixed if you build with VS2017 instead of 2015.
This is causing build breaks on Ooui.Forms
