Description Andrew Fernandes 2013-06-11 12:58:57 UTC
In a recent Android SDK version update (Android SDK Tools: 22.0.1, Android SDK Platform-tools: 17, Android SDK Build-tools: 17), the location of the build tools have moved.

Since Xamarin Studio (4.0.8) uses hardcoded paths, the build command '${SDK_DIR}/platform-tools/aapt' fails since the 'aapt' file does not exist at that location. That file, *along with others*, have moved to '${SDK_DIR}/build-tools/17.0.0/aapt'.

For now, symbolic links in the platform-tools directory solve the issue. But that's hackish and interferes with non-Xamarin build systems.

Which version of Xamarin.Android are you using? This should have been fixed in 4.6.6 (stable) and 4.7.5 (alpha) (though you'll need 4.7.6 on Windows).

Too funny; I'm the missing sandwich-filling... I'm on 4.7.4 in the beta channel. Alpha is a little too bleeding-edge for me! :-)

So stable - fixed, alpha- fixed, beta - not fixed. :-) Not that big of a deal...
