I created a XAML PCL app and am trying to compile the Android project against XF 126.96.36.199-pre3. However, I'm getting AppCompat errors related to variables defined in styles.xml. I'm using VS 2015 with Update 3 on Win 10.
Before I compile the app, I clear anything in C:\Users[username]\AppData\Local\Xamarin as well as bin, obj, and packages folders.
Please compile the sample project attached and let me know how to fix the issues.

Here you can see the Android build config, VS errors, and SDK Manager setup.
The problem is I have a slow internet connection and it takes ages to download the zip file in C:\Users[username]\AppData\Local\Xamarin\zips. Visual Studio hangs in the middle of build making it look like there is some kind of error. Downloaded zip file eventually gets corrupted.
See this thread: https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/17349/compilation-error-unzipping-failed-please-download-https-dl-since-xamarin-studio-v5-0-upgrade/p1
Xamarin should give some kind of warning to the user that the file is being downloaded or corrupt.
Moving this to Xamarin.Androdi team.
