One of the first and simplest warning any newbie (just like me) to Xamarin might encounter is
An unexpected error occurred trying to initialize Android Designer. Please verify the Android SDK path and the Java Development Kit path on Tools->Options->Xamarin->Android Settings menu. Please see the logs for more details.
You might first ensure if the SDK folders are correctly mapped. If it is and you still get the errors, it is time to fire up your SDK Manager and update the following
- Android SDK Tools
- Andriod SDK Platform-tools
- Andriod SDK Build-tools
You would also need to ensure your JDK is 1.8. That should take away the warning. Just in case the following warning comes, restart your visual studio and you should be all set.
IDE0006 Error encountered while loading the project. Some project features, such as full solution analysis for the failed project and projects that depend on it, have been disabled
