Why is the Xamarin installer trying to download SDK again?


I've been trying to build up a Win10 PC from scratch with Xamarin for VS2015u3 and am following along with:

The Xamarin installer in Step 5 shows several "missing components" including the SDK and NDK, both of which have already been downloaded (the sdk in C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk has more than 50GB.. can't be downloading that again I hope)

Any ideas?

  • Update: I let it run, and it didn't download anything; other installs good
