I noticed that after running the vstoolsforxamarin.exe installer I'm unable to create a working Xamarin.Forms Shared Project using Visual Studio. It looks like there are some missing references, I see a bunch of errors after the project is created "namespace name 'System' could not be found". I have run the Xamarin installer and rebooted a couple of times to make sure everything required was installed. vstoolsforxamarin.exe at least isn't complaining anything is missing. I have also run XamarinInstaller.exe universal installer.
I would guess that this is probably a bug since it was a clean install of VS on my PC (usually I run Visual Studio in VMs, so my desktop had nothing development related previously installed). My PC is Win 8.1 x64.
An example error (1 of 150ish):
Error CS0246 The type or namespace name 'System' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) App1.UWP C:\Users\Andrew\AppData\Local\Temp.NETCore,Version=v5.0.AssemblyAttributes.cs 2 Active
I think I can probably work around this by installing Xamarin Studio and making a new project with that, I can download this installer from the account dashboard XamarinStudio-18.104.22.168-0.msi. But I wanted to report this problem since the Xamarin devs probably want it to be a better out of the box experience.
Sorry if this is not the right place to report this problem. Is there a better place I should report this problem?
