Could you confirm what are the minimal requirements for Mono for Android development?
Do we support Windows XP?
My feeling is we should not support XP.
This is the issue where Google's Android SDK went for several months broken in that you could not start an emulator if you installed the SDK in a path that contained spaces (which was Google's default).
Since then, Google finally fixed the issue in newer SDK versions. Additionally, we worked around this issue so we could still launch emulators despite this bug.
Additionally, we support Windows XP, both 32 and 64 bits.
