I'm having an issue with building my Xamarin project in VS2017. I've always built it in Xamarin Studio in the past, but wanted to give Visual Studio a try.
Whenever I try to run, I get
An inconsistency between the local app and the remote build has been detected for <app>. Please rebuild the application and try again. Check the log for more details
I have is that I don't know where this magical log is, because the error message provided is completely useless. So I'm not sure what route to even go down debugging this issue.
I happened across this bug from about a year ago https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=36059
One possible problem mentioned is the connection between mac and windows being closed, but this is not the case either. I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting, and nothing changes.
The bug previous bug report says that the problem is the signatures mismatching between the windows obj folder, and the xamarin cache obj folder on the mac agent.
I checked the signatures manually, and the signatures for my executable project match on the windows and mac side. However, in the windows side there's a signature and signature-remote file. The signature file matches the mac signature file, and the signature-remote file is empty. This seems to indicate to me that something is going wrong recovering the signature from my mac to be able to compare them, but I have no way of confirming that.
Does anyone know how to either debug this problem, or get it fixed?
