We've recently decided to develop a simple companion app for our website, and so I've been looking to Xamarin.
I've tried on two separate PC's, and on both I am at a complete loss on how to get xamarin working properly. I have VS 2015, I've tried installing via the VS install options, I've tried Nuget, and I've tried the separate xamarin installer.
When I look at the nuget packages it shows there's a newer stable release out there that I can't get to update through nuget, and xamarin installer claims I am current. I'm not sure what version is actually the latest.
Any time I open a brand new project, it already has a slew of errors ("XamlCTask" task failed unexpectely) and "Error encountered while loding the project. Some project features such as full solution analysis (....) have been disabled" usually) that change based on where I install xamarin from.
I'm wondering if someone can point to me to the definitive steps for installing xamarin for VS properly, and what versions are correct.
