Description of Problem:
Cannot build project using 1.0.1 & VC plugin
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. download attached VC 2010 project
2. add to VC and build
"aresgen.exe exited with code 1"
No error message
How often does this happen?
If you remove the uppercase letters in the color element of file theme.axml,
change Main.axml to reference the new name then it will not produce the error.
WORKS <color name="uicolor_lightgraycolor">#aaaaaa</color>
FAILS <color name="uicolor_lightGrayColor">#aaaaaa</color>

I'm not sure how to easily fix this. :-(
The problem is filenames: Android requires lowecase filenames, and some
@color/foo entries are backed by files:
In order to allow MixedCase filenames and resource references (e.g.
@color/MixedCase), aresgen "fixes" XML by lowercasing @color resource
references, so that Android sees @color/mixedcase. This is ~required in order
to support Resources\color\MixedCaseFilename.xml files.
However, the lowercasing technique thus screws up Resources\values\colors.xml
entries, as you're seeing.
I suppose the fixup process could check for filenames provided, and if a
resource reference isn't also a filename, not lowercase it. I'll need to
Problem still seems to exist.
The following element will cause a compile error if referenced like android:background="@color/Dim_Gray"
While this one will not (android:background="@color/dim_gray")

This is now fixed in the Xamarin.Android master branch.
I have checked this issue now I am not getting any build error when I use <color> element either in upper case or lower case. To verify this issue I have create two elements i.e.
and both elements are working fine with following attribute
This issue has been fixed. Hence, I am closing this issue.
