I am new at Xamarin and to learn I've started with the "Hello, Android" guide at "http://developer.xamarin.com/guides/android/getting_started/hello,android/" and after building the Phoneword App I get the next error:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Common.targets(2,2): Error XA0000: Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "C:\Users\Marc FernÃ¡ndez" is denied. (XA0000)
Thank you very much for your help,
I believe this is down to a limitation in Java in that it does not play nicely with accented characters in path names. Please try moving your project to a folder that is not in your home directory, and ensuring that the Android SDK isn't contained within your home directory, and that the new folders do not contain any non-standard characters.
I hope that helps.
