Exception in MonoDevelop opening GUI editor
Description of Problem:
I created my first project after installing latest version of Xamarin package for Android development (4.4.54). After opening Main.axml, error is shown as in attachment.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Install fresh Xamarin package for Android development
2. Create new project (Hello world)
3. Open Main.axml
Exception of type 'Xamarin.AndroidDesigner.DesignerException'
How often does this happen?
Running program in emulator is successful.
Same thing happens if I create 'Hello world' project in Visual Studio 2010
Do you still get this error with the latest version of Xamarin.Android?
No, everything works fine now! :)
We have verified this issue with the latest builds:
And now this issue is not appearing, as the designer load successfully.
Hence, closing this issue.
