Hi all, I have an enhancement for MAUI that I raised as a PR for Xamarin.Forms but it missed the cutoff. I've worked with the forms codebase and been able to build, debug & test locally. I'm at the point with my MAUI work where I'm ready to start testing code & running it, unfortunately I can't even seem to get MAUI to build correctly.
Here are the steps I've taken:
- Install VS2022 Preview 1
- Fork MAUI
- Pull my fork
- Create a new branch (no changes)
- Run build.ps1
- Script gets stuck on the following line:
dotnet-install: Downloading primary link https://dotnetcli.azureedge.net/dotnet/Sdk/6.0.101-servicing.21567.21/dotnet-sdk-6.0.101-win-x64.zip
I say it gets stuck, when I try to manually download the file its 230Mb & the download speed is extremely slow to the point chrome says it would take 8 hours to download.
Does anyone have any advice on how I can get my enviroment prepared to be able to completely build maui locally?
Thanks, will update here if I figure it out!
