I believe this is a repeat of bug 9911, 18172, 18196 18193 and/or 15374.

I'm on Windows 7 x64 SP1

I've attached a screen shot of the problem, then a screen shot of an error that occurs if I follow the instructions and close/reopen the file.  I've also included the event log error.

I've just tested from Visual Studion 2010 and I get the same message:
Disconnected from layout renderer. Please close and open the file again.

This is caused by the latest Android SDK update.
