I'm currently evaluating Xamarin as well as Xamarin Studio for my company.
The first thing I did was creating a project structure containing a PCL. Within this PCL, I tried to install autofac using nuget, but that's simply not possible.
Could not install package 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.RuntimeInformation 4.0.0'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets '.NETPortable,Version=v4.5,Profile=Profile111', but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author.
I did some research. The error seems to be somewhat related to nuget as well as to the portable .NET library (as the error message suggests, but see also https://github.com/AutoMapper/AutoMapper/issues/1532, for example) rather than to autofac itself.
Is this a known issue? Should I use a newer version of NuGet from within the Terminal to install dependencies in the future?
