An update to this issue:

This is happening on all machines when SDK tool version is 22.6. and this has been fixed with X.Android 4.12.02001

But I am not sure which build of Xamarin for VS will have this fixed? Please let us know shall we get a build of Xamarin for VS which will have this fix?

I have checked this issue with following builds:

Windows 8.1
V.S 2013/2012/2010
Xamarin for VS 1.12.247

Now I am successfully able to open .axml file when sdk tool version is 22.6. This is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/vingtBp0kdc
