Error ResGen when created any project
Hello, all right experts?
I am new to Xamarin, I try some problems after updating Xamarin Studio, but the same happens in Visual Studio.
After updating the Xamarin, some errors started happening when I create a new cross-platform project.
My resgen shows the error as the image below attached.

No resource found that matches the given name: attr 'colorAccent'.
No resource found that matches the given name: attr 'colorPrimary'.

Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name 'Theme.AppCompat.Light.Dialog'.

Please try doing a Clean and Rebuild on the Android project. You may have to manually delete the bin and obj folders and Rebuild if that does not seem to work. Please also ensure that the Android Support V4 and V7 packages are installed, updated, and properly referenced in the Android project.
