When you specify the sdk loacation, and you watch the build output. It still uses the last setting until you restart Xamarin Studio
Comment 1 Jeffrey Stedfast 2015-04-13 14:42:25 UTC
The problem is once the xbuild logic is initialized, until/unless Xamarin Studio unloads and then reloads the project, the xbuild logic will not reload the XML file that Xamarin Studio sets this configuration option in.

@jeff why move this to XI if the solution requires to restart XS (or the solution within) ?
Comment 3 Jeffrey Stedfast 2015-04-16 07:50:55 UTC
Because I think the problem is that the MSBuild logic needs to reload the settings
Comment 4 Lluis Sanchez 2015-04-16 10:16:59 UTC
How are the settings given to msbuild?
Comment 5 Jeffrey Stedfast 2015-04-16 10:31:31 UTC
MSBuild loads them itself
Comment 6 Jeffrey Stedfast 2015-05-05 12:30:42 UTC
this should be fixed in git master now
