Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name 'android:WindowTitleBackground'.

Today while trying to compile a project I got for github I got this error.

Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name 'android:WindowTitleBackground'.

It's so annoying because it worked perfectly in one machine and on my laptop it did not. When I was almost given up I thought of replacing the platform tools with old platform tools and it worked!!

Download the revision 11 tools from here

http://dl.google.com/android/repository/tools_r11-windows.zip

and rename your platform-tools folder in android-sdk-windows and paste this there. That should work!
