Please create a new report on
Developer Community with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Run the Unified Installer (--force-from-resources as necessary to get 1.12+ into the manifest)
2) Un-check Android during product selection
3) Complete the install
No Android templates are present.
You can try to create an Android template, but it can't find the targets file so it errors out.
VS stays open, and the situation is wholly recoverable. It just might be slightly confusing.
Note: this bug should not affect anyone who wants to use both platforms, it just might be confusing for people who start off with one platform and later decide to try the other.
Support - you can let people know who see this issue and want to use the other platform that they can use the 'Change' option in Windows' "Programs and Features" tool to select the other SDK.
This is the Unified Installer from installer/master/554040b4176248d4036045cbf4763d5cbddd6514
It's actually an issue with the XVS msi installer. It has to be updated to not install the templates if Android SDK is not being installed.
I'm going to assign it to Daniel - please assign back once the XVS side is updated accordingly.
Moving to VSX since it's not a unified installer issue.
as per comment 2, this issue is already assigned to VSX. Hence marking it as Confirmed.
We don't support installing either iOS or Android support for the XVS extension. Same thing for VS 2017.
