    1. Restart your project.
    2. Double click your android project
    3. Make sure your target framework matches what api's are installed( Located under framework).
    4. Check for that too under Android Application. Check that the Min Android version and Target Android version are what you have installed using the SDK Manager.

    Happy Coding.

    Hi David,
    I had a similar issue to yours and resolved it by:

    • Downloading the "" as mentioned by Abdul
    • Create a folder called "content" in the directory mentioned by Abdul ("C:\Users\Javaad\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Xamarin.Android.Support.v4\"), yours will have a different user name.
    • Then extract the contents of that zip file into the "content" folder.
    • Clean your project
    • Build.

    This solved it for me. Hope it helps and for anyone else that runs into this Xamarin issue.
