Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Android GooglePlayServices sample.
2. Follow README.
3. Build the project.
Actual Result: I have followed all steps mentioned in README. I have observed one more thing here, In GooglePlayService project there is a Docs folder which name starts in uppercase however in Android sdk there is docs folder which name starts in lower case. So there is Issue when I am copying docs folder in GooglePlayServices project because Docs folder already exists and it is not replacing it. To resolve this Issue I have Added existing folder (Right click on Docs->Add->Add Existing Folder) then chooses 'Assets' and 'reference' and then I have build it and I am getting build error
Expected Result: GooglePlayServices should build successfully.

REGRESSION: This Issues was verified in Bug 12844
I'm unable to build google play services using the instructions in the readme:
> $(ANDROID_SDK)/tools/android update project -p .
> ant debug
update project fails with: Error: The project either has no target set or the target is invalid.
ant fails because build.xml does not exist
Atsushi, is this still expected to build correctly?
Better yet, can we just update this sample to use the GooglePlayService (froyo) component? I will update the sample to use the component if that is ok with you Atsushi.
I am fine with it. It's good to have this closer to whatever the component team has. Thanks Peter.
This has been done in https://github.com/xamarin/monodroid-samples/commit/1be38c07916d1fc30adfcd5247e141ea9daa5da2
I have checked this issue with latest Android sample "GooglePlayServices". I have observed that when I am opening this sample in XS, Only GooglePlayServicesTest appears in Solution. I have added GooglePlayServicesFroyo in component then I have build project. It is giving me 6 build errors: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/a4c82fadc0039eec4fca
Please look into it and let me know have I missed anything here?
The missing types are from Xamarin.Android.Support.V4.dll. How does the Reference for that assembly look like in your GooglePlayServicesTest project? I believe it is added as part of GooglePlayServicesFroyoLib.dll.
I built it without problem on XA 4.12.4 but might fail with later dev. versions.
I have tried this with both staging and production environment and I am getting same 6 build errors.

Created attachment 7079 [details]
I also attached my project
As I earlier mentioned on comment #6, those missing types are from support.v4.dll. GooglePlayServicesFroyo seems to explicitly reference Mono.Android.Support.v4.dll, so it must be also referenced in your project. Or the component store and IDE support must have "dependency resolution" functionality.
(resetting assignee to default.)
Starting from the attachment 7079 [details] when I add in Google Play Services (Froyo) version 12.0.3, I can build and successfully launch the project. When I use version GPS (Froyo) version 7, I get the same 6 build errors.
What version of the GPS are you using?
Xamarin Studio: Version 5.0.1 (build 3)
Xamarin.Android: Version: 4.12.5 (Trial Edition)
I have also observed that with component GooglePlayServices(Froyo) version 12.0.3 application working fine However, with version 7 I am getting 6 build errors.
XS 5.1 (build 479)
Git revision: e5a428cec75d4cc7e6e3ccd8192a3660d013e7dc
Use the production version of the component only. 12.0.3 is the stable version, 7 is very old.
I know the situation with the staging component store is not ideal, but we'll have to work around it for now.
RESOLVING as FIXED because the issue is fixed in the latest version of the component.
