Description Atsushi Eno 2011-10-08 14:59:08 UTC
I have installed MfA via the new installer and ran MD, and created a new project.
Since I have never used Android SDK at c:\Program Files*\, MfA fails to determine appropriate platform profile and resulted in missing Mono.Android.dll, I tried to switch the SDK to c:\android-sdk-windows which should be a sane operation. But it does not actually set the value and returns the path under c:\Program Files*\.

Actually this reproduces on VS2010 too.

regedit to workaround: In HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Xamarin\MonoAndroid, remove PrivateAndroidSdkPath and PrivateAndroidSdkVersion.

It's fixed last year.
