Description michael 2016-08-01 06:39:51 UTC
The version of Google Play Services that is being targeted by the Xamarin Google is out of date. For instance, one of the new features added by Google in late June was the ability to set the z-index of a marker, which isn't currently available

We are trying to use the preview version of the nuget packages related to Google Play Services that exposes the z-indexing method. Currently we are getting an error when the code is being built

Java library file C:\Users\MichaelBui\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Xamarin.GooglePlayServices.Tasks\9.4.0\embedded\classes.jar doesn't exist.

Android resource directory C:\Users\MichaelBui\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Xamarin.GooglePlayServices.Tasks\9.4.0\embedded\./ doesn't exist.

We have noticed that the whilst Xamarin.GooglePlayServices.Base, .Basement, .Gcm and .Maps have versions 32.4.0-beta2, the Measurement package doesn't a matching version.

Forgot to add, are you able to assist with this issue?

Managed to find out the issue, the google play services tasks nuget package wasn't pulled down as a dependency when updating the nuget packages. Uninstalling and reinstalling the packages did however pull down the dependency.
Comment 4 Jon Dick 2017-09-28 15:01:01 UTC
This is fixed in newer versions of play services
