How to create a PCL which targets both Windows 10 Universal and Xamarin.Android?

edited October 2015 in Cross Platform with Xamarin

We are developing an application which needs to be supported on both Windows 10 and Android. We are not using Xamarin Forms but share code using portable class libraries. Currently when I create a PCL I cannot target both Windows 10 Universal and Xamarin.Android. It automatically falls back to Windows 8 and .Net Framework 4.5 (Screenshot).

Could you please advise how to achieve this?


  • We are in the same boat. We'd like a PCL that targets Windows 10 UWP, .NET 4.6 and Xamarin. Is there such a Profile?

    That's not actually a fall-back. It's telling you that, because those other targets support the same APIs, they will automatically be targeted in addition to the ones you've selected.
