i created a simple application with GPS library(which came default with the B4A setup). the code was compiled successfully but i am not able to run my app on my device (xiaomi redmi 1s).

when i clicked RUN button, Compile and Rapid Debug window opened displaying the text as followed

Parsing code. 0.00
Compiling code. 0.02
Compiling layouts code. 0.02
Generating R file. Error
ERROR: Unknown flag '--'

Package the android resources. It will read assets and resources that are

aapt r[emove] [-v] file.{zip,jar,apk} file1 [file2 ...]

aapt v[ersion]
Print program version.
-a print Android-specific data (resources, manifest) when listing
-c specify which configurations to include. The default is all
configurations. The value of the parameter should be a comma
separated list of configuration values. Locales should be specified
as either a language or language-region pair. Some examples:
If you put the special locale, zz_ZZ on the list, it will perform
pseudolocalization on the default locale, modifying all of the
strings so you can look for strings that missed the
internationalization process. For example:
-d one or more device assets to include, separated by commas
-f force overwrite of existing files
-g specify a pixel tolerance to force images to grayscale, default 0
-j specify a jar or zip file containing classes to include
-m make package directories under location specified by -J
-u update existing packages (add new, replace older, remove deleted files)
-v verbose output
-x create extending (non-application) resource IDs
-z require localization of resource attributes marked with
-A additional directory in which to find raw asset files
-F specify the apk file to output
-I add an existing package to base include set
-J specify where to output resource constant definitions
-M specify full path to AndroidManifest.xml to include in zip
-P specify where to output public resource definitions
-S directory in which to find resources. Multiple directories will be scanned and the first match found (left to right) will take precedence. -0 specifies an additional extension for which such files will not
be stored compressed in the .apk. An empty string means to not
compress any files at all.
