Just created my first project with Xamarin.Android. Compiles OK, but when I want to run it, this error shows up:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Common.targets(5,5): Error XA0000: Unexpected error - Please fill a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Directory 'C:\Users\FrÃ©dÃ©ric\Documents\Projects\ZinioArchiver\ZinioArchiver\bin\Debug' not found. (XA0000) (ZinioArchiver)
The correct path should contain "Frédéric" instead of "FrÃ©dÃ©ric". I suppose there is an invalid encoding somewhere.
I'll try to use the 8.3 notation in the future as a workaround...
Please enable and provide Diagnostic build output:
Created attachment 4447 [details]
Output of MSBuild
@Frédéric: I don't think Attachment #4447 [details] is Diagnostic build output, as it doesn't contain the `mandroid` command that's being executed.
I have created a new folder with a plain name (D:\Xamarin) for placing my projects instead of the default VS2K12 project folder (C:\Users\Frédéric\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects) and that solved my issue.
You can easily reproduce the problem by using a special character in the path to the Xamarin project, but in my case, this workaround solved the issue, so as far as I'm concerned, you can close the call.
Just to do a little bookkeeping: this is most likely a duplicate of bug 14918.
