Resolution Note:

Work around this issue by adding a link.xml file with the following contents to the Assets/ folder of the project: <linker> <assembly fullname="core-logger-unity" preserve="all"/> </linker> This will prevent the managed code stripper from incorrectly removing managed bytecode from the core-logger-unity.dll assembly. This incorrect code removal is the source of the problem.
