Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2017-07-13 16:03:24 UTC

1. File -> New Android App
2. Use the Solution Configuration dropdown to select "Configuration Manager"
3. In the Active solution configuration dropdown select "<New>"
4. Name the new configuration as something with a space: EX "Test Config"
5. Set the Solution Configuration to "Test Config" on your project. 
6. Right Click your Android project and go to Properties
7. Attempt to check any properties such as Proguard, Multidex, etc and notice that they will not check.

This bug does not seem to be fixed in 15.3. It is however fixed in 15.4. For those running into this issue, please update to the 15.4 preview or rename your configuration to a non-space name.
