appcompat_v7 Errors

I'm using the latest Eclipse from the Android Dev website to follow along with this video. As soon as I create the project, Eclipse reports several errors related to 'appcompat_v7'. Some googling seems to suggest that it's related to the version of Android used to compile the code, but I can't seem to figure out a) if that is true in my case, and b) how to correct this in my code. Can someone point me in the right direction, please?

```[2014-11-16 10:54:42 - appcompat_v7] C:\Users\Manoj\Eclipse\workspace\appcompat_v7\res\values-v21\themes_base.xml:195: error: Error: No resource found that matches the given name: attr 'android:colorControlHighlight'.

Thank you.

Hi Manoj,

Did you download as a bundle from the Android Developer site? Not sure if the bundle uses the Luna version of Eclipse. None the less, that shouldn't be of concern.

Of what I've encountered regarding the appcompt issues, is usually when updates are not done using Android manager.

Also there was an issue with the latest ADT plugin that Android had rolled out a few months back. Since the wait for a fix took long I move to Android Studio since. Maybe the issue has still not been fixed. Try getting a a version lower than the already installed ADT. Or rather try upgrading through https link to the new ADT plugin. Whichever succeeds

Will look out for a possible near solution if possible and keep you updated.

Hi Gunjeet,

Yes I downloaded Eclipse from the Android Dev site. I think it says Juno when I start it up.

Yes, if you find anything else, please let me know. I am kind of stuck at the moment - can't get Eclipse to work and I'm trying to avoid going through the rigor of doing this lesson on Android Studio. I'll do the latter if I have to I guess. :)
