Comment 2 Karl Shifflett 2016-10-07 17:41:32 UTC
After rolling back to Xamarin Android applications build and run.

However, still getting the Build Warning that I reported in the attachment.

Comment 3 Karl Shifflett 2016-10-07 18:38:11 UTC
Much appreciated.  Have a great day.
Comment 4 Al Clark [MSFT] 2016-10-18 17:58:13 UTC
I've thus far been unable to replicate this issue.  Can you please check that that your Android SDK packages are up to date and you only have the latest Android SDK Build Tools installed?
Comment 5 Karl Shifflett 2016-10-18 18:31:14 UTC

Yes, my system is fully updated.  Also, others on the forum thread reported the same issues.

Do you have a clean machine to do this on?


Comment 6 Karl Shifflett 2016-12-02 15:21:39 UTC

I've now been able to deploy to Android.  Something must have been fixed since I logged this bug.

Recommend closing for now.

Wild times we are having!
