Description Daniel Cazzulino 2016-10-31 12:01:45 UTC

1 - Install VS + Xamarin
2 - Install Android Studio to get the Google Emulator v2 => this installs Android 7.1.1 (API 25) by default
3 - Point XVS to the Android SDK folder from Android Studio
3 - When using XVS, the following error shows up:

> No Android platform found. Please click here to open the SDK Manager and install an Android SDK Platform

The log from monodroidtools shows: 

> Found Android SDK. API levels: (none)

Obviously, the solution is to install an API level supported by VS, but neither error message is clear about it.
