Xamarin Android SDK Manager 0.1.17.0 (master+1c4ba1d)
Please refer to the following post for details and screenshots: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/45239710/xamarin-android-sdk-manager-doesnt-save-locations#comment77482834_45239710
Stackoverflow post -
Using Visual Studio 2017 and Xamarin, I installed the [**Xamarin Android SDK Manager**] to replace the default Android SDK Manager, which is now deprecated.
Then I updated JDK to the current x64 version and, using the Xamarin SDK Manager, I installed the most recent version of Android NDK.
I now want to update the locations of these SDK's in the Xamarin Android SDK Manager, Locations tab like so:
[![Updating locations of SDKs]]
Yet, every time I restart the tool, the locations are **reset**. It also keeps telling me there's *2 components to install*, yet when I do, it doesn't complain about any failure.
[![Locations are reset]]
I have tried running as Admin and cannot seem to figure out what is wrong. Log files seem to be non existent. Is there anyone who has the same problem and found a solution?
I am able to reproduce this issue on VS 2017 v15.3 preview4, full version info
