    <Content Include="..\Android\Properties\AndroidManifest.xml">

This does not work in 4.4.54. Solution explorer shows the file correctly, but designer does not know to read it from the link.

In general, "Link" metadata within MSBuild files are not used for anything other than the solution tree. Everything else uses the "real" paths.

The designer should be reading the file specified in the AndroidManifest property, so you would need:

    <... other elements ...>
Comment 2 Lluis Sanchez 2013-03-13 05:41:07 UTC
As Michael said, you need to specify the correct path in an <AndroidManifest> element. Closing.
