Description Allie Miller 2013-06-27 15:38:50 UTC
I try to install and use Xamarin.Android. But the Android SDK cannot be set because my computer's name has an accent in it.  It says the path is not correct. After trying to move it to a location without the accented character, the issue remains. I do not have the option to choose the location to install.

This appears to apply to the installer and androidtools, not just to XS.

Allie, is it Windows or OSX? Can you provide a stack trace of the error, or a screenshot?
