Can't compile project - VB.Net - Fatal error BC2000 - Xamarin/MonoDevelop
Just downloaded Xamarin/MonoDevelop in order to create a VB.Net based cross-platform application.
However Xamarin keeps returning a fatal error when attempting to compile a default template.
File > New > Solution
VBNet > Gtk# 2.0 Project
Click Play (Debug)
Error Fatal error BC2000 : compiler initialization failed unexpectedly: Project already has a reference to assembly System. A second reference to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework.NETFramework\v4.0\System.dll' cannot be added. (Fatal error BC2000 ) (test111)
The above occurs if I click Play, Build, Run/Start Without Debugging, and Run/Start With Debugging.
The above does not occur with a C# Gtk# 2.0 project.
There is only one reference to System within the References folder in the Solution tree.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
It seems that you can work around this bug if you install Mono and set it as your runtime (Project / Active Runtime menu), then it will build and run successfully.
