Description Peter Collins 2015-05-28 18:47:24 UTC
I'm filing this separately from Bug #30555 as I believe there are multiple issues at hand. This bug is strictly meant to cover the fact that the aapt path has changed.

Old location:

New location:

This change in paths results in the following build error:

OSX Yosemite
monodroid 5.1.2-1

WORKAROUND: Set the $(AaptToolPath) MSBuild property to the new build location in your .csproj:

Comment 2 Atsushi Eno 2015-05-29 06:16:52 UTC
I removed build-tools 22.0.1 and reinstalled to see if the files have changed, but it still has build-tools/22.0.1/aapt and no build-tools/22.0.1/bin/aapt . Which version is your build-tools?
Comment 3 Atsushi Eno 2015-05-29 06:23:43 UTC
Nevermind, turned out that I didn't have r23 installed. I see bin/aapt, bin/zipalign etc. there.
Comment 4 Peter Collins 2015-06-01 21:27:38 UTC
Should be fixed in master/c3ff871

We have checked with following steps and able to deploy app on XS/Mac, XS/Windows, and VS/Windows successfully.

Steps we followed:
1. Set up environment having the preview Android Build-tools are installed.

2. Open or create a new Android project in the IDE.
3. Deploy the project to a device or emulator in both Debug and Release.

Hence closing this issue.
