I get the following error while referencing the iTextSharp dll
C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Novell\Novell.MonoDroid.Common.targets(2,2): Error: Exception while loading assemblies: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load assembly 'System.Drawing, Version=184.108.40.206, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'. Perhaps it doesn't exist in the Mono for Android profile?
File name: 'System.Drawing.dll'
at Monodroid.Tuner.MonoDroidResolver.Resolve(AssemblyNameReference reference, ReaderParameters parameters)
at Xamarin.Android.Tasks.ResolveAssemblies.AddAssemblyReferences(List`1 assemblies, AssemblyDefinition assembly)
at Xamarin.Android.Tasks.ResolveAssemblies.Execute() (Dashmate)
Also I tried to add System.Drawing.dll , but it still did not resolve the error.
Guess the System.Drawing within the Mono.Android.dll is conflicting with the System.Drawing.dll which is being referenced by the iTextSharp
It would be really helpful if you are able to resolve this issue as early as possible
You cannot use System.Drawing.dll which is available only in full .NET profile. Mono for Android supports only its mobile-based profile which is almost the same as Silverlight.
