get error when using xamarin live player but using android emulator no problem

I'm trying direct connect to Mysql Database using "", everything work on android emulator. But when I try debug using xamarin live player I get this error.

The type 'Exception' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=969db8053d3322ac'.

The type caught or thrown must be derived from System.Exception

Please help me I'm very new in xamarin.

    Hi @VincentDev , here is a discussion about connect to MySQL , you can refer to .
    However , suggest that do not connect your App directly to your database. This will cause a huge secruity problem. Use web services instead. The web services will handle the interaction between your client and server.
