Hi, I have a xamarin forms solution containing an app for ios, android & windows.
We would like to setup a Jenkins run in order to build and test the apps and, for the moment, we have decided to build the iOS & android apps on a Mac Mini and test them on simulators.
To build the apps, we are using MSBuild as follows:
msbuild "mysolution.sln" /p:Configuration="JenkinsNonUWP" /t:build /p:Platform="iPhoneSimulator"
This produces an app file which differs from the app file produced by Visual Studio.
The msbuild app file (when you view the package contents) contains 2 directories: ".monotouch-32" and ".monotouch-64". Both of these folders contain an ios "exec" file, "xamarin.ios.dll" and "xamarin.ios.dll.mdb"
If I drag the app to a simulator to install it, I will get an error.
On the other hand, these folders do not exist in an app generated by visual studio. And I can drag the app to a simulator to install it ok.
If I copy the contents of ".monotouch-64" to the app root directory and delete the folders, I can install the app.
So my question is: how do I prevent these folders from being generated/used in the msbuild app? Do I need to be more specific with my msbuild command?
