I just tried to build monodevelop from source using winbuild.bat( which uses MSBUILD). When I run the compiled exe and I try to create a project or open a project I get an error stating The Project could not be created . The Type initializer for 'MonoDevelop.FSW.FileSystemWatcher' threw an exception.

@directhex I get the same error even when I build using VS 2017 on windows.

With further testing I found out that, Shared Project template works fine. Mostly the projects related to .net core produce this error

i think those were added after the last official windows release of monodevelop (xamarin studio), so there may well be regressions in untested code on windows

does the mono filesystemwatcher wrapper require libmonoposixhelper or something?
