Android Device Manager in Visual Studio 2017 shows 'Android SDK Platform is Missing'

I was able to open Android Device Manager in Visual Studio 2017, and use it to create or edit emulators. However, all of a sudden I'm getting the error **'Android SDK Platform is Missing' ** while opening the same. Android SDK is set up correctly, I believe. I'm able to run the already created emulators. However I can't create a new device or edit existing devices due to the error I'm getting.

Note: I can't add in screenshots due to some restrictions by the forum

How to solve this issue? Thanks in advance!

    "Android Device Manager"? Manager?

    Do you mean Android Device Monitor or Android SDK Manager? or Android Emulator Manager

    Also... "Did you try turning it off and back on again?"
    No, seriously. If you make changes to the android paths in Visual Studio options they aren't changed in real-time. You have to close Visual Studio and re-open because those paths are only used when VS launches.
