Developer Community with

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.
Set up a project with:
- Target Framework: Android 4.0
- Minimum Android version: Android 2.2
- Use Shared Framework: True
Then try to deploy to an Android 2.2 device. It will try to install the 4.0 platform apk, which will fail.
It should instead deploy the highest one supported by the device (that is still valid for the minimum android version).
This is unfortunately by design. :/
For 4.2, it will check for this condition and give a friendly error instead of letting you sit through the whole install and then erroring.
