Description Matthew Regul 2016-03-18 17:19:28 UTC
== Overview: =================================

>( See private note for more details )
In some situations when executing an Android Release-mode app, containing Insights, and enabling linking (Link Behaviour = Link Framework SDKs Only) an attempt to read data from an HTTPS endpoint throws an exception.
(Similar to https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13998 but for Android instead of Xamarin.Mac)

== Build Date & Platform: ====================
Version Info - https://gist.github.com/mattregul/28390328c6a72b6f3bec#file-my-version-cs
Insights - 1.11.4

== Additional Information: ===================

== Workaround: ===============================
(from https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13998#c5)
Add the following to your code:

"System.Security.Cryptography.AesCryptoServiceProvider b = new System.Security.Cryptography.AesCryptoServiceProvider();"


Set the Android project's Linker Behavior to "Don't Link"

@Matt as Insights no longer supported and similar bug is marked as fixed, I am making this bug resolved
