Android Studio Errors

Hi guys This Android Studio is a beast. I keep on getting errors! These are the latest! Error:(3) Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name 'android:TextAppearance.Material.Widget.Button.Inverse'. Error:(18) Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name 'android:Widget.Material.Button.Colored'. Error:Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugResources'. > com.android.ide.common.process.ProcessException: org.gradle.process.internal.ExecException: Process 'command '/Users/tyronerichards/Library/Android/sdk/build-tools/21.1.2/aapt'' finished with non-zero exit value 1 Not sure how to proceed! I am using Android Studio 2.0 using Buzztouch Control Panel. I have API 14, 21, 22 and 23 installed. I am compiling for API 21 and Build Tool version 21.1.2 Thanks for all the help Tyrone

Well, the proper procedure to debug problem like this is to take the description of the problem, search for it trough Google and something will come up. In this case, I copied and pasted the following sentence: No resource found that matches the given name 'android:TextAppearance.Material.Widget.Button.Inverse' Out comes a Google listing for that long, long, long phrase and it turns out that many people already had that problem, and that all of them have already solved it. I clicked on the first link in the results, and got to this page: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32075498/error-retrieving-parent-for-item-no-resource-found-that-matches-the-given-name From there we see that if you have version 23 installed, it needs to be taken into account and that you have to match everything else to it. One of the solutions on that page will surely solve your problem.

@Tyroner: Ive solved the Problem with this Steps: Two little Things and all is Running like a Charm.... 1) Insert in the "build.gradle" the Statement: useLibrary 'org.apache.http.legacy' 2) Delete in the main/AndroidManifest.xml (Line 60): android:debuggable="false"> My Settings in the build.gradle: apply plugin: 'com.android.application' android { compileSdkVersion 23 buildToolsVersion "23.0.2" useLibrary 'org.apache.http.legacy' defaultConfig { applicationId "com.YOURAPPNAME" minSdkVersion 14 targetSdkVersion 14 } buildTypes { release { minifyEnabled false proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.txt' } } } dependencies { compile files('libs/gcm.jar') compile files('libs/YouTubeAndroidPlayerApi.jar') compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:8.4.0' compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:8.4.0' }
