Error Running UWP Project (UniversalWindows) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am making a crossplatform xamirin forms application that should run on android and pc windows.

    But when compiling the UWP version I am getting the exession

    Can not resolve Assembly or Windows Metadata file 'Xamarin.Forms.Platform.WP8.dll'


    Type universe can not resolve assembly: Xamarin.Forms.Platform.WP8, Version =, Culture = neutral, PublicKeyToken = null


    I read about these errors on the internet and from what I could see, it is related to the Xlabs plugin being used in the application. Is this information correct?

    If yes, would I have some way to fix it without removing the Xlabs plugin, why am I using it on multiple forms to be able to checkboxes.
