Using Visual Studio 2017 ( 15.9.22) and trying to open Android SDK Manager under Tools->Android gets the message "Loading SDK component information failed.Please retry"
The output window in Visual Studio IDE shows the following message
ValidateAndroidSdkLocation: `C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk`, result=True
ValidateAndroidNdkLocation: ``, result=False
[I:]: Looking for Android NDK...
[D:]: ValidateJavaSdkLocation: `C:\Program Files\Android\jdk\microsoft_dist_openjdk_126.96.36.199`, result=True
[I:]: Found Xamarin.Android 188.8.131.52
From the above message its looks like there is some issue with AndroidNdklocation. Where is Android NDK location and how do I set it?
In Visual Studio 2017, the Android NDK location can be set from Tools->Options->Xamarin.
