Using Xamarin I can't solve the error when open even the default layout.

" Something weng wrong The installed Android SDK it to old. Version 25.1.3 or newer is required. Please update to the latest version. "

As seen in the image below I already installed the latest tools. SDK Manager

Using Java 1.8. Did I miss something? Thank you very much.

I had a similar problem. Here a solution that worked for me:

1) delete the one package appearing in the screenshot of the Android SDK Manager in the url below. Nota bene: At this stage VS 2015 greyed out the Android SDK manager buttons, even after a restart.

2) download installer_r24.4.1-windows.exe for windows https://developer.android.com/studio/index.html

3) launch the Android SDK Manager outside of VS and install the proposed 19 packages. This time I could go through the installation.

4) Launch VS 2015 and create Xamarin Android project. Launching Main.axml would launch the designer properly on an android project.
