Description Rob Gibbens 2014-02-28 14:29:34 UTC
When including a drawable-xxxhdpi (needed for devices such as a Nexus 5) folder in the Resources folder, Visual Studio refuses to compile the code.  Compile error : "Invalid resource directory name: "drawable-xxxhdpi"."  I am able to include this folder on Xamarin Studio on a Mac (and the resources are deployed correctly to my Nexus 5).

I have checked this issue and tried to reproduce this I have followed the stpes below:

1. I have created a sample android application.
2. Added a folder named "drawable-xxxhdpi" in the resource folder.
3. Build the application successfully.
4. Added an "icon.png" in the "drawable-xxxhdpi" folder and build the application successfully.
5. Then rename added folder from "drawable-xxxhdpi" to  "drawable_xxxhdpi". then on build application I am getting error: 
"Invalid resource directory name: "drawable_xxxhdpi"."

And when I delete the "icon.png" from "drawable_xxxhdpi" folder then on 
build application got build succeeded.
