Exception relating to configuration for vector support library. Looks like it's a setting in Gradle 2.0+ not sure how to resolve it in Xamarin.
The first exception will say that "abc_vector_test.xml" is missing.
If you add an empty file with that name then you will get the following error message.
"This app has been built with an incorrect configuration. Please configure your build for VectorDrawableCompat."
Xamarin.Android - v184.108.40.206
SDK Tools Version: 25.2.3
SDK Platform Tools Version: 25.0.1
SDK Build Tools Version: 25.0.1
Xamarin Studio Community - Version 6.2 (build 1499)
I'm using the pre release Xamarin Android Support libraries also.
To reproduce the error it's as simple as creating a new empty Xamarin.Android project. Change the Main activity to AppCompatActivity. Then run the app on a device < 21.
The exception will trigger in activity OnCreate, on the base parent call.
I'm seeing the same thing here, did you ever manage to work around it ?
I think the explanation here speaks for itself, its easily reproducable. Its not directly an android issue either, because I've a test project to test UI that's in java, and the errors don't occur there. I've tried everything from Android.Support.V7.App.AppCompatDelegate.CompatVectorFromResourcesEnabled = true; , changing ImageViews to android.support.v7.widget.AppCompatImageView , no luck. The crash occurs, even before it manages to load any UI (so before SetContentView in an activity).
This is still a pretty big obstacle to us, and we've found no way to work around it.
Thank you for taking the time to submit the bug. We are unable to reproduce this issue. Please attach a reproduction to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Android project and adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
Here is my test run where I attempted to reproduce the issue in a new Android app set to use AppCompatActivity per the bug description; all 8 devices with a range of Android versions from 4.4.4 - 6.0.1 passed without reproducing the bug:
