Description Kyle White 2017-01-10 17:28:57 UTC
Our error message should explain to the user that 64bit JDK is required

To repro:
0) Make sure your VS is pointing to 32 bit Java JDK
1) Create new cross platform app (choose Blank app, Forms, shared)
2) Build
3) Open MainPage.xaml in the previewer

Actual result is an obscure error.

Expected result should be an error informing the user that 64bit java is required for Android preview.
