Description Allie Miller 2013-01-17 19:13:06 UTC
When attempting to open any .axml files from within Visual Studio 2010 or 2012, you may only view the files in source mode. Otherwise, you get the error "The Operation Could Not Be Completed."
The activity log also shows nothing.
The Android SDK location is set properly.

That's an old bug. Is this still an issue?
