My VS worked well before I synchronized my project with my friend’s using GitHub. After that, somehow I notice Visual Studio targets different location to android.jar file. So, whenever I compile my code, I receive the following error.
Could not find android.jar for API Level 24. This means the Android
SDK platform for API Level 24 is not installed. Either install it in
the Android SDK Manager (Tools > Open Android SDK Manager…), or
change your Xamarin.Android project to target an API version that is
C:\Users\Joshua\AppData\Local\Xamarin\MonoForAndroid\AndroidSDK\platforms\android-24\android.jar is a directory location in my friend’s drive.
How to change the target location of that android.jar file in VS 2015?
Looks like your app is trying to use Android N tools to compile or targeting API level 23
Under your Android project properties -> Application, set the
Target Android Version and
Compile using Android Version to API Level 23 to fix it
Go to android project then right click -> Properties -> Android Manifest (scroll down) then you will see Minimun android version and Target android version.
in vs project -> your application properties -> change target framework to your api version. that’s it
