After enabling proguard in the project/app, project doesn't build.
The following error comes:
Error		"java.exe" exited with code 1.

Correction to Comment 1:

Xamarin.Android 7.3 is already included in the Xamarin 15.2 Release, and the log files from Comment 0 show that the reporter is using the Xamarin 15.2 Release (XamarinVS version  This means that the Java JDK version of 8 (1.8) is OK, and the space in the Android SDK path (related to Bug 33052 and Bug 32861) is the most likely remaining problem.  I will accordingly mark Comment 1 as obsolete.

From the attached monodroid*.log file:

> ANDROID_SDK_HOME found: C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk

## Corrected next steps

1. Move the Android SDK to a path without spaces such as C:\android-sdk

2. Update the Android SDK path setting in Visual Studio under "Tools > Options > Xamarin > Android Settings > Android SDK Location".

3. Attempt to build the project that uses ProGuard once more.

4. If the build still fails, please collect and attach back the diagnostic build output:

a. Set "Tools > Options > Projects and Solutions > Build and Run > MSBuild project build output verbosity" to Diagnostic.

b. The next time you build the project the diagnostic MSBuild output will now be visible in the Output window.

c. Once you hit the error again, you can save the diagnostic MSBuild output to a file via "File > Save Output As...", zip it up, and attach it back.

Thanks in advance!

Excellent.  Thanks for the follow-up.  I will mark this as a duplicate of the old related Bug 32861 just for thorough bookkeeping.
