OK, So I run up VS2017 and get it to create a blank Xamarin Forms cross platform app from it's built in templates.
And "Build"
...

...

...

18 errors, 2 warnings.
"InitializeComponent" does not exist.
"Certificate expired"
"System" not found.
...


Sigh | :sigh:
OK, lets see ... check out the .cs file, and there is calls InitialiseComponent - right click, "go to definition" - file opens, there it is.
Close the file again. And ... all the errors vanish.
Run it and it works.

So, you have to open a file to tell it where the stuff it just created is? O....Kay... D'Oh! | :doh:
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
