    Don't set the Win32 icon in your project settings, that's only used by Windows desktop apps.

    Because this is the spot I landed when I searched this issue and didn't find a solution, I'll post mine. Exit Xamarin and open the .csproj file for your solution in a text editor. Delete the lines in debug and release configurations that refer to the app icon in drawable, should look like this:


    When you reload your project and rebuild it should clear that error out.

    Dude... It makes twice that I've got this error and the "edit .csproj file method" works...
    The problem is that I didn't remember I have resolved the first time... until I saw this post...

    But why it happens again ? I don't know the initial reason... Xamarin updates ?

    I hope to remember next time ;-)

    Thanks @syntap (twice) ^^

    :) I'll probably forget it myself, Google it, and find my own post!

    I also faced the same issue. It got solved by removing the Application icon line in the release configuration section from Cs project.
