Having a space in the path to the Android SDK can cause build issues such as:
>Expecting class path separator ';' before '\Android\android-sdk\build-tools\22.0.1\lib\shrinkedAndroid.jar'
We should warn users to considering placing the SDK in a non-spaced location
I only have this issue when I enable multi-dex. But since the android-sdk folder is default in Proram space Files(x86) this is really annoying. Had to move the Android-sdk folder to a non-spaced location before I could enable multi-dex. Also I lost time to google this and I found the solution here. Xamarin should be able to handle spaced loctions of the android sdk in my opinion.

That is the topic of Bug 33052, marked as a "Depends on" for this bug.
I believe this specific issue is fixed as per the status of https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=33052
However there is a more broader issue of other items such as the overall path hygiene
Thus I am marking this bug as a duplicate of #54683 as there are many more items that need to be cleaned up other than the SDK including a space in the path. There's also an issue if the NDK gets installed in a space in path.
