Xamarin Studio fails to install

JoeDoeJoeDoe ILMember

Hello,
I want to develop an Android App, and chose to do so with Xamarin Studio.
Unfortunately, the installation keeps failing for me.
Here's a picture: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=scym9e&s=8#.UzVrtYWLWLs

The installation log is also included

Thanks in advance!

    I just thought that I would mention that I too have this error.
    I have manually installed all the per-requisites including gtk-sharp2.12.21.msi as well as jdk_6u39-windows-x64.exe and jdk_7u51_windows-x64.exe

    The Xamarin Installer fails to detect gtk-sharp, and then attempts to download and install.
    The installation fails after three attempts, and I get the same error message as above.

    The PC is a Windows 8.1 x64 install (with the latest MS Updates).

    I am currently running Xamarin on a Mac for iOS development for work (I am using a work provided license for this), and I would love to try some android development on a spare Windows Box.

    I dont really want to disturb Xamarin with such a trivial problem, but I thought it might be worthwhile to post up this issue, just in case it helps the development team. :)
