Xamarin.iOS: solving the “codepage 1252 not supported” exception

When creating an application using Xamarin.iOS(also known as MonoTouch), we stumbled over following exception message when deserializing some data:

“codepage 1252 not supported”

We solved this by executing the following steps:

  • Go to the Project Settings of your project in Xamarin Studio.
  • Go to the Build Tab and select the iOS Build option.
  • Check the west checkbox in the Internationalization codesets list.

I am developing with Mono for Android and was looking for hours until I found this solution. Simple! It works like a charme now :). Thank you very much.
