Error 1 Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: System.ArgumentException: Malformed name HowDoISamples
Could you please provide us the test steps you followed?
Here's how the error is displayed on Xamarin Studio
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Common.targets(5,5): Error XA0000: Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: System.ArgumentException: Malformed name (XA0000) (HowDoISamples)
I was getting the error message because there was a comma in one of the folder names in the file path. I just moved my solution files somewhere else and it works fine now.
As per comment 4, now this issue does not exits Hence, I am closing this issue.
