Forum Visual Studio

iOS and Android extensions unavailable after install

Hi all,

I have recently had to wipe my windows installation. I have since been trying to re-install visual studio community and xamarin but it is giving me the following problem. When I try opening a xamarin forms project I was working on the Android and iOS projects don't load correctly.

It then prompts me to install the missing packages but nothing is missing.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Hi thanks for the reply, There is a reload project option but it does not change anything when clicked.

    @ClintStLaurent it took a second try for your suggestion to work, thanks! There was a mismatch in installed frameworks vs specified minimum framework.


    hi all
    i have the same problem like you @Michael Vowles , but when i try to reload project it asks me to install missing features.
    i have my android sdk installed inside my D directory (because of luck of space in C ) and i configured the path in xamarin options.All seam to be working good (xamarin installed , android sdk , ndk also)

    Go to ‘Uninstall Or Change a Program Window’ {“Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features”}, Find ‘Visual Studio 2015 Tools for Xamarin’ And Repair It.

    It Solved My Problem :smile:
