MDocArchiveToMsxDocConverter.exe not found rver.BaseCommand.OnRequest

Error message

We have recently seen a few reports of the following error appearing in the "Mac Server Log" in Visual Studio:

Error: /Developer/MonoTouch/usr/share/doc/MonoTouch/MDocArchiveToMsxDocConverter.exe not found
rver.BaseCommand.OnRequest (System.Net.HttpListenerContext context, System.Object commandRequestState) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
  at Mtb.Server.Listener.OnRequest (System.Object state) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0

There are 2 separate issues in this message:

  1. Error: /Developer/MonoTouch/usr/share/doc/MonoTouch/MDocArchiveToMsxDocConverter.exe not found

    This error is harmless, but it is also misleading. It will be removed in a future release.

  2. rver.BaseCommand.OnRequest (System.Net.HttpListenerContext context …

    This error is the real problem. Unfortunately, due to a limitation in the current versions, this exception stack trace is incomplete. If you notice an incomplete stack trace like this in the Mac Server Log, you can check the ~/Library/Logs/Xamarin/MonoTouchVS/mtbserver.log file on the Mac build host to find the complete stack trace.
