SciChart® the market leader in Fast WPF Charts, WPF 3D Charts, and iOS Chart & Android Chart Components


Trying to install SciChart.iOS NuGet package for Xamarin.iOS project results the following error:

Package SciChart.iOS is not compatible with xamarinios10 (Xamarin.iOS,Version=v1.0). Package SciChart.iOS supports: xamarinios (xamarin-ios,Version=v0.0)

Wondering what the heck is “xamarin-ios,Version=v0.0”? It must be xamarinios10. We’re considering to buy SciChart but right now our build server is stuck on this error. As a workaround, we raname xamarin-ios to xamarinios10 in the lib directory but this not an option for a cloud build server.

    This forum seems dead. Is there anyone from SciChart team to address this simple issue?

I’m sorry about the delay in resolving this. I’ve just installed VS2017 along with 20 gigabytes of Xamarin updates đŸ˜€

OK here is the result. Opening a new project -> selecting iOS Single View application and then in package manager console I typed

Install-Package SciChart.iOS 

I have the package source setup in Tools -> Options -> NuGet -> Package sources as as per our readme and instructions.

The package SciChart.iOS installed correctly without issue. Here’s a quick readout from the console window.

I haven’t gone further than that, trying to determine where or how you got this problem.

I do have all the updates for Xamarin.iOS and have also recently updated the NuGet Package Manager in Visual Studio Tools -> Extensions and Updates.

Please let me know if you continue to experience problems with a new fresh project. I will be glad to investigate further.

Also, for more urgent support the best channel is the tickets under Developers -> Open a support ticket.

    I see, the plot thickens :) Let me try this.
  • Andrew Burnett-Thompson
    I can reproduce it now. Not sure why it occurs. I will talk first to our NuGet host ( and secondly do some research into any changes of the package format.
  • Andrew Burnett-Thompson
    Success!! Can you try package We made a small change to the Nuspec file to install SciChart.iOS in the correct folder. VS2017 with PackageReference now seems to be happy.
  • Andrew Burnett-Thompson
    Also .. build v2.0.1.543 fixes the same issue for Android. We’ve updated our deployment for the examples too which failed to build during this revision range. Thanks for reporting!!! :)

    Cool. It works now. Thank you, Andrew!


sorry for late reply. Could you please check out your package.config file? Does it look like the following one:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<package id="SciChart.iOS" version="" targetFramework="xamarinios10" />

Also, please check your SciChart nuget feed url. It should be like this one:

    My NuGet feed URL is the one you provided. However, as package.config is now deprecated in favor of PackageReference, I use that: <PackageReference Include=”SciChart.iOS”> <Version></Version></PackageReference>
  • Andrew Burnett-Thompson
    Hi rubs00, using VS2017? Gimme a moment I’ll try it out.
  • rubs00
    @Andrew Yep, VS2017
