Downgrade Xamarin.Android

I`ve installed Xamarin (Xamarin studio, Xamarin.Android) But there are some problems with building even the simpliest project(just create new project->Build->Get an error).

After some googling I found that I`m not the only one experiencing such problems.
The only solution I found is to revert to an earlier version of Xamarin.Android. But how do I do this? Can anyone help, please?

Current version of Xamarin.Android is 4.8.0

Desired version to rollback to is 4.6.6

Answer

I've talked to Xamarin about downgrading. It's not straight-forward. You will need to uninstall everything from Add and Remove Programs and then re-install directly from the following .msi's:

  1. JDK 1.6: http://download.xamarin.com/Installer/MonoForAndroid/jdk-6u39-windows-i586.exe

  2. Android SDK: http://dl.google.com/android/installer_r22-windows.exe

  3. GTK#: http://download.xamarin.com/GTKforWindows/Windows/gtk-sharp-2.12.21.msi

  4. Xamarin Studio: http://download.xamarin.com/studio/Windows/XamarinStudio-4.0.8.msi

  5. Xamarin.Android for Visual Studio and Xamarin Studio: http://download.xamarin.com/MonoforAndroid/Windows/mono-android-4.6.08007.msi

  6. Xamarin.iOS for Visual Studio: http://download.xamarin.com/MonoTouchforVisualStudio/Windows/mtvs-1.1.200.0.msi
