I was having many errors with my Xamarin project not being able to recognize the Android namespace and read that the solution was to delete the contents of the /bin folder and let it re-build from scratch.
I did that and now I am getting the error here:
The only thing I've found is that a small number of other people have had this error and there is no solution in their threads. Under references the path to Mono.Android.dll is correct (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\Common7\IDE\ReferenceAssemblies\Microsoft\Framework\MonoAndroid\v8.0\Mono.Android.dll), and the file exists. I can remove the reference and re-add it and will still see the same error.
Does anyone know how I can fix this and get back to my previous set of mysterious Xamarin errors?
