Setting android-sdk location in MSBuild?

I'm trying to setup Jenkins to produce builds of a VS 2015 Xamarin Android app, but I'm running into this problem:

Creating the symlink and setting the Android SDK location in the Visual Studio Xamarin settings works great, but when I try and run the build through Jenkins, which uses an MSBuild batch command, I'm back to getting the "PROGUARD : error : C:\Program Files (Access is denied)" error. Is there any reason the Android SDK location setting would not be picked up by MSBuild or is there some other way I can set the configuration for Xamarin so that it does work with MSBuild?

    Any Solution to this?

    I fixed it by linking the Android SDK to C:\android-sdk. The Program Files path is too long for proguard, that's why it's erroring out.
