Android Support Library

Hi I am new to Xamarin in visual studio, so can you help with this error: "Could not load controls from Android Support Library. Performing a nuget restore package may fix it." Also, I have a rendering issue: The project contains resources that were not compiled successfully, rendering might be affected."


  • Hi,

    When you are getting this error? Can you please check SDK version with project's selected version?

    As another option; you need to check from Tools->Nuget PM ->Nuget Package Manager settings->"Allow NuGet to download missing packages"

    So, how do you check the SDK version?

    Hi, I checked it, it is already allowed, but that did not solve my problem.

    check also if you have all sdk versions installed. also try all clean bin, obj, temp restart visual studio steps

  • Faced a similar issue. Sometimes it occurs if you made changes in drawable folder or add a xml file in structure. You need to close VS and start again > Clean Solution > Rebuild Solution & run.
