I have never had a problem compiling until yesterday when I received this error message:

Parsing code. 0.00
Compiling code. 0.07
Compiling layouts code. 0.02
Generating R file. Error
..\Assets\values\styles.xml:3: error: Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name '@android:style/Theme.Holo.Wallpaper'.
..\Assets\values-v19\styles.xml:3: error: Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name '@android:style/Theme.Holo.Wallpaper'.
..\Assets\values-v19\styles.xml:5: error: Error: No resource found that matches the given name: attr 'android:windowTranslucentNavigation'.
..\Assets\values-v19\styles.xml:4: error: Error: No resource found that matches the given name: attr 'android:windowTranslucentStatus'.

It happens on most of my programs now, which were working. I tried compiling a simple lockscreen program that I found on your forum and which was working but does not now. I then tried Test.zip on your forum which is the "Hello World" sample and this did compile correctly. I deleted the text from the manifest on the lockscreen to install the default text, but I still received the same error. Does anyone have any suggestions?

It is not related to the manifest file.

Seems like you need to reference a more recent version of android.jar (under Tools - Configure Paths).
Thank you Erel. It seems I had it set for android-10 and, although I never changed this setting, it did work a few days ago. I also have available android-14 and android-15. I tried both and this did decrease the number of errors to 2, but I still could not compile of course. Is there a later version I should be downloading? Also, should I be changing the manifest line of text shown in red below to agree with this change?

AddManifestText(
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" android:targetSdkVersion="14"/>
<supports-screens android:largeScreens="true"
android:normalScreens="true"
android:smallScreens="true"
android:anyDensity="true"/>)

Error message:
