Description Alan McGovern 2013-03-03 11:43:57 UTC
After a clean installation of my system I got this error when trying to build a new project:

/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Xamarin/Android/Xamarin.Android.Common.targets: Error: Error executing task GenerateJavaStubs: Directory '/Users/alan/Library/Developer/Xamarin/android-sdk-mac_x86/add-ons

The error is becauset he 'add-ons' directory does not exist yet we try to use it. If i create this directory then the build works just fine.

I just noticed the error was truncated. Here it is again:

/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Xamarin/Android/Xamarin.Android.Common.targets: Error: Error executing task GenerateJavaStubs: Directory '/Users/alan/Library/Developer/Xamarin/android-sdk-mac_x86/add-ons' not found

Today we have checked this issue using following builds on fresh installation

Xamarin.Android - 4.6.1
Mono- 2.10.12 (mono-2-10/823e22f)

We are successfully able to build and run android applications on physical device as well as on emulator.

Changing the status to Verified.
