  • Hi,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    You can have a look at the thread:


    • Go to Tools -> Android -> Android Emulator Manager
    • Make sure the Android Virtual Devices tab is selected
    • Select any device which is x86 and click the Delete... button.
    • Press the Refresh button to verify no x86 devices are still in the list
    • Close the window
    • Rebuild the project

    Since this forum is to talk about visual studio IDE, I recommend you go to Xamarin forum to get more support about it. Thank you for understanding.

    Best regards,
