Application Crash with "Method not found: 'MonoMac.Foundation.NSObject.InitializeHandle'."


I am working on Xamarin Mac project. In my project I am using a third party library and that is working fine for me. Today I checked out that same code on different mac and tried to run the project in debug mode. But the app crashed with error "Method not found: 'MonoMac.Foundation.NSObject.InitializeHandle'." on the runtime. I am not able to find out why the same code and library is working on one mac and not working on other.

My trial

But that don't help me and started giving error: > Error MM0008: You should provide one root assembly only (MM0008)

as @chamons‌ suggested at

--linkskip=VALUE Skip linking of the specified assembly

--linkskip is an invalid setting unless you give it an assembly, such as --linkskip=foo.exe

I am not sure what exe I should use in this command. In the line where app crash I am using constructor of third party Library "OSXFuse" and the same code is running on one of my other mac.
