I am facing a problem since I've installed visual studio 2015 with xamarin, the project was running fine until yesterday evening when I decided to deploy iOS app. On opening .iOS properties > iOS Application, visual studio get crash unexpectedly and gets restart. Please help.

    Fixed it. The issue was invalid Entitlements.plist tags

    For some reason Entitlements.plist tags changed to following.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">

    I created new project, opened its plist file and replaced my project Entitlements.plist with new one.

    Same problem here.
    I fixed it by manually checking out the mentioned entitlements.plist file from TFS.
    Thanks to @ZaifworksDevs for pointing me in the right direction.
