    Got this after updating 5.4.0f1 to 5.6.0b6

    Simply restarting Unity resolved it for me.

    This work for me...

    5.4.3f1 to 5.5.2f1

    1. Close current project
    2. Create a new project
    3. Reopen your project

    Restarting Unity should fix the error.

    Maybe another clue. In Library/shadercompiler-UnityShaderCompiler.exe0 I found this error:
    Base path: H:/Unity/Editor/Data
    Cmd: getPlatforms
    Unhandled exception: Protocol error - failed to read correct magic number

    Quitting shader compiler process

    A simple fix that worked for me and fixed this error + some particle errors (not found shader).
    For me the error started after upgrading from Unity 5.4.3f1 (64-bit) to Unity 5.5.0f3 (64-bit)

    1. Close current project
    2. Create a new project
    3. Reopen your project

    Yup. Don't use ads but started getting this error when opening a project built with 5.3.2 in 5.5.
