Description Þórður 2015-04-07 05:41:37 UTC
My default Windows 8.1 profile is linked to my ms account, and windows then creates my profile with icelandic characters.  This causes problems for Xamarin Studio, as it can't handle non-english characthers, in my case "Þ,ó,ð" from my first name "Þórður".

Projects can not be built in the default projects directory (error 675):

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Common.targets(2,2): Error XA0000: Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "C:\Users\Þórður" is denied. (XA0000) (test1.Droid)


If I place the projects somewhere 'safe' (c:\dev), then next problem: the android emulators can not be started:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Common.targets(3,3): Error XA0000: Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: Could not find SDK directory 'C:\Users\Þórð
ur\AppData\Local\Android\android-sdk'.  Is --sdk-dir set appropriately? (XA0000) (TaskyAndroid)

If I somehow get the emulator started, then the next error is in locating the SDK directory:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.Common.targets(3,3): Error XA0000: Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. Reason: Could not find SDK directory 'C:\Users\Þórður\AppData\Local\Android\android-sdk'.  Is --sdk-dir set appropriately? (XA0000) (TaskyAndroid)

edit - 
1- project can not be compiled if their path contains non-english chars
2 - emulator does not start
3 - if emulator is started manually, access to sdk fails because of non-english chars in path.
