Description Yvan Rodrigues 2014-03-21 11:24:51 UTC
After a Xamarin component is added to a project using "Get more components", the path to the component and the jar file cannot be found by the build process.

I can reproduce this in Visual Studio 2012 and Xamarin Studio on OSX. Here are the errors from both platforms:

C:\Program Files
(x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Common.targets(166,2): error
XA5206: . Android resource directory
doesn't exist.
C:\Program Files
(x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Common.targets(166,2): error
XA5207: . Java library file
doesn't exist.

: error XA5206: . Android resource directory [REDACTED]/Components/googleplayservicesgingerbread-15.0.2/lib/android/15/content/google-play-services/libproject/google-play-services_lib doesn't exist.
: error XA5207: . Java library file [REDACTED]/Components/googleplayservicesgingerbread-15.0.2/lib/android/15/content/google-play-services/libproject/google-play-services_lib/libs/google-play-services.jar doesn't exist.

In both cases the paths are valid and do exist.

rodo: any idea on this google play services resource issue?
Comment 4 Yvan Rodrigues 2014-03-21 12:08:22 UTC
I created a fresh test project in the same root directory as the one above; added the Google Play Services (Gingerbread) component.

It builds successfully.

Just for fun, I got this when trying to remove a component while testing this issue:

Comment 6 Yvan Rodrigues 2014-03-21 12:51:43 UTC
Back to the Mac.

I removed the components from the projects. Then I deleted every trace of the components at the filesystem level. I re-added the components. The solution successfully built.

Something else is being weird (see red references in screenshot), but at least it built.
Comment 7 Yvan Rodrigues 2014-03-21 12:52:39 UTC
Created attachment 6379 [details]
Xamarin Studio indicates that files required to build are missing.
Comment 8 Shruti 2014-03-24 07:09:32 UTC
The issue has been reproduced with following steps.

1. Create a new Android Test project.
2. Add component 'Google Play Services(Gingerbread)' from 'Add more Components'.
3. Build the project.Project will not compile successfully and will generate errors.
4. Error log shows that '.jar' file is missing and it is also asking to download google_play_services_4242030.zip file and extract on location where project resides. 
5. I downloaded 'google_play_services_4242030.zip' file and try to extract as per given path but failed to extract due to long path issue

It seems that this is long path issue when component is downloaded and takes long path to extract the files then it fails to download because it does not allow to take the path more than 259 characters.

Visual Studio 2012.
XS : 4.2.3 (build 60)
X.Android : Version: 4.12.2
Comment 9 David Laundav 2014-12-03 07:41:53 UTC
I get the exact same issue as Shruti which, as seen from the date information, seemingly has existed since March this year. 

When is it expected to be fixed? It is a blocker for me personally, since I cannot continue development.

Environment info:
Visual Studio 2013: v12.0.30723.00 (Update 3)
Xamarin: v3.7.248
Xamarin.Android: v4.18.1.3
