search the community for AAPT execution failed
did you import an App Inventor project?

Yes, I did import a project named MQTTKitchenLight but it was too different of my purpose so I copied the project to another name, loaded new name and manually erased everything and started making my own.
First test did not compile, then I tried to download the extention from the designer web site.
Then I started a new project and imported the extention UrsPahoMqttClient and started my coding… but it did not compile.
Then I started a new project, no extentions, The one on the exemple above, and it does not compile either.
Old projects compile, everything started to go wrong after I used the above extention.
Will try to search AAPT as indicated.

Somehow Theme was the reason for the problem.
