My basic setup for this has been the same one described in: http://slodge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/mvvmcross-vnext-portable-class.html
- I've installed VS, the Portable Class Library VS2010 extensions, VS2012, MonoDroid and VSMonoTouch
- I've then altered the registered Portable Library platforms just a little in order for Droid and Touch to both work under the magical Profile 104
However, working this way, I do admit I've experienced several small problems, and I thought I might list them here in case they help others:
- VSMonoTouch doesn't yet work in VS2012 - so there's no iOS support in VS2012 yet. There are some people who have got this working over on GitHub, but I've held off implementing anything in case Xamarin pull some magic out of the hat during this week's MonkeySpace conference.
- MonoDevelop refuses to open any solution that Visual Studio 2012 has opened - this is due to a Version number - 12 instead of 11 - at the start of the .sln file - it takes seconds to fix in NotePad++, but it is annoying
- There are some issues building MonoDroid portable projects in VS2012 sometimes - sometimes it takes 2 builds rather than 1 - no idea what this is yet - it feels like its somehow not quite hooking up the dependencies correctly between PCL and MonoDroid. I've not seen this problem at all in VS2010.
- There are some issues sometimes on putting breakpoints in the PCL code - again I've not identified what this is completely yet - and I have a feeling it may be a more general MonoDroid bug, and nothing to do with VS2012.
- I have seen some TargetFrameworkAttribute errors in VSMonoTouch projects - see http://slodge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/the-type-or-namespace-name.html for my hacky solution.
However.... overall, that's it - I'm up and running and Resharper is working too :)
