I have just been forced to get the latest Xamarin update (18.104.22.1685) in Visual Studio 2015 because of the bug in yesterday's release (22.214.171.1243). I have also updated Xamarin.Forms via nugget to V 126.96.36.199. I tried to update SkiaSharp to 1.58.0 at the same time but this now fails. Trying to go back to 1.57.1 also now fails with the same error message:
Package 'SkiaSharp.Views.1.57.1 : SkiaSharp [1.57.1, )' does not exist in folder 'D:\Data\Work\Dev\Projects\Live\MyProject\packages'
Could not install package 'SkiaSharp.Views 1.57.1'. 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.
As things stand, this is a show-stopper, so I'd be very grateful if anyone knows how I might be able to fix this.
I am going to try getting a previous version of Xamarin.Forms, but my real question is: what are the 'normal' targets for a Xamarin.Forms project? I currently have: .NET Framework 4.5, ASP.NET Core 1.0, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8.1, Xamarin.Android, Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.iOS (Classic), Xamarin.Mac.
I was going to experiment with changing the .Net Framework to 4.5.1 or 4.6 but apparently I have to uninstall all nuget packages first. Before I proceed with this painful process, could anyone offer any advice about whether I am barking up the wrong tree here?
Any help at all would be very gratefully received.
Kind wishes ~ Patrick
