I Installed Xamarin for Visual studio 2010 and the configuration options is fine but when I build my program shows me this error.

Error 1 The specified task executable location "C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\aapt.exe" is invalid. AndroidApplication3

    Can you open the Android SDK Manager and check that you have 'Android SDK Build-tools' installed. I think you need version 17 at a minimum.

    The problem faced me on upgrading SDK so I go back then the problem solved

    Ah, did you install the API 19 build tools and SDK? At that point did the error occur? If so we should be able to replicate that issue.

    Yes I installed API 19 build tools, but there is an update for android SDK tools rev 22.3 and android SDK platforms-tools rev 19 if I install them the problem occurs
