I have created a new project for xamarin

Templates -> Visual C# -> Cross-Platform -> Blank App (Xamarin.Forms Portable)

And after that I run the project and get a System.TimeZoneNotFoundException

What do I have to do to simply run the example template??

See also the corresponding item from the Xamarin.Android release notes [1]: 

> "Ionic.Zip.ZipException ... __AndroidLibraryProjects__.zip is not a
> valid zip file ---> System.TimeZoneNotFoundException" when building
> Android projects in certain Windows time zones. Temporary workaround:
> Change the Window time zone. For example the "Central Time (US &
> Canada)" time zone does not hit this error.

Change the Window time zone. For example the Central Time (US & Canada) time zone does not hit this error
