I wanted to try out Xwt but I am not able to compile it. 
I check that latest version from github and opened in Xmarian Studio under Windows. The default compiler is mono 4.0.3 and the error is this.

D:\projects\xwt\Xwt\Xwt.csproj(1,1): Error: Unknown MSBuild failure. Please try building the project again (Xwt)

The Build log does not show any error just this.



Building Solution: Xwt (Win-Debug)

Building: Xwt (Debug)

Build started 08/26/2015 20:53:59.

Can anybody help me on this.

I was able get rid of this error by disabling the "Use MSBUILD engine" checkbox in the Xwt project properties under Build -> General.
But now I have the problem of missing GTK references.

Sadly I was not able to  integrate those references into the project with nuget

You could try changing the target framework of all projects to 4.5 (and keep MSBuild enabled), worked for me.
