Description z-eh 2014-12-27 06:48:45 UTC
I'm a hungarian developer and I use accended characters in my development environment.
Because of that, I can't use Xamarin Studio to development.

I try to build My Android application and it finds the solution in the wrong path:
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.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Directory 'C:\Users\Ăbel Zoltán\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects\ReverseSync\ReverseSync.Client.Android\bin\Debug' not found. (XA0000) (ReverseSync.Client.Android)

The real path is:
'C:\Users\Ábel Zoltán\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects\ReverseSync\ReverseSync.Client.Android\bin\Debug'

Please use UTF-8 encoding for path, it's a real pain in the ass problem... -_-
