Questions:

Cannot find adb.exe in specified SDK path:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\platform-tools\adb.exe

I know it’s there because I can see adb.exe in the folder, anyone know how to fix this?

How to&Answers:
  1. Run “SDK Manager” as administrator:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\SDK Manager.exe

  2. Download the missing libraries.

    Android SDK Tools

    Android SDK Platform-tools

  3. Set the path of the SDK in Visual Studio:

    Tools -> Options -> Xamarin -> Android Settings

Android SDK Location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk

Answer:

Please be aware with the current standalone SDK the SDK platform tools (needed for VS) should be downloaded first via the SDK manager in the SDK folder

Answer:

Try going to Tools >> Options >> Xamarin >> Android Settings.
Then make sure all your Locations for SDK, NDK and JDK are correct and pointing to the correct path.
Make sure you are running your project editor(xamarin studio/visual studio) in Admin too.

Answer:

When you set the SDK path, it is going to take the current folder and look for adb at PATH\platform-tools\adb.exe.

It would appear that you’ve set that path as C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools, so that’s why you see it can’t find it, because there is no platform tools folder inside the platform tools folder.

Answer:

Just use sdk manager and install what comes up to be missing or not found ……trust me it works.

Answer:

you have to paste this adress when you are looking for sdk in option>xamarin>android settings
C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk
