Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2016-01-13 22:47:51 UTC

When running the "Build -> Run Code Analysis on Solution", the build fails as it's trying to find the AndroidManifest.xml, but it isn't created by the time the build fails.

Build Output: https://gist.github.com/JonDouglas/a7b91949d7e772d54bd6

Specific Error:

1>Target "CheckAbiAndMinSDK" in file "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Analysis.targets" from project "c:\users\jon\documents\visual studio 2015\Projects\App9\App9\App9.fsproj" (target "RunXamarinProjectAnalysis" depends on it):

This also happens on a Debug/Release configuration of a File->New Blank Android project

*Reproduction Steps:

1. Create a File->New Blank Android Project

2. Rebuild the Project

3. Run Build->Run Code Analysis on Solution

4. The error message above should appear in the output and Build Output.

Comment 1 Michael Zimdars 2016-01-14 07:33:47 UTC
This issue can be fixed by commenting out in Xamarin.Analysis.targets:

<Target Name="_EmitXamarinProjectAnalysisResults">
<!--EmitAnalysisResults Results="@(XamarinProjectAnalysisResult)" /-->
<Target Name="_EmitXamarinPackageAnalysisResults">
<!--EmitAnalysisResults Results="@(XamarinPackageAnalysisResult)" /-->

and putting a condition in Xamarin.Android.Analysis.targets:

<Target Name="CheckAbiAndMinSDK" Condition="Exists('$(IntermediateOutputPath)android\AndroidManifest.xml')">

but of course this is disabling analysis tasks in the xamarin build, so this might not be desired.
