Description Jérémy chassin 2015-06-02 10:43:33 UTC
I Installed VS2015 community edition and created a Android Blank App.
I just tried to build the solution and I got this error.

System.Exception: La génération a démarré.
Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: Could not find SDK directory 'C:\Users\J├®r├®my\AppData\Local\Android\android-sdk'.  Is --sdk-dir set appropriately?
ÉCHEC de la build.

It looks like there is an encoding problem.
The right path should be "C:\Users\Jérémy\AppData\Local\Android\android-sdk"

Hi Jeremy,
this issue caused by extended characters in path was fixed, you should not experience this bug in latest alpha build.
