Description Dylan Borg 2017-08-10 18:01:07 UTC
I have XA installed using the usual steps of make prepare, make , make install. I opted to use msbuild due to using a custom compiler (not c#) (had success with XA in the past) by setting MSBUILD=msbuild. 

I have included the usual android support libraries, but am facing issues with XBD. It is not automatically fetching the aar files (can be forced using the _XamamrinBuildDownload target) and it is not including the libraries in the build. As a result AAPT is failing to find resources making the build fail prematurely.

The android support libraries switched away from XBD, back to teh old way of embedding native resources in nupkgs. I am therefore closing this.
