Hi everyone,
I'm trying to create a simple application.
My code is fine and everything worked perfectly a few days ago.
Now I cannot even run my application and gets a weird error.
I have only one activity and no jar files.
This is my Java code:

package binder.pictureslicense;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.app.AlertDialog;
import android.content.DialogInterface;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.os.Handler;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.ImageView;
import android.widget.ProgressBar;
import android.widget.TextView;
import java.util.Random;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    }

    public void clearScreen(View view) {
        clr();
    }

    private void clr() {
        ImageView pic = (ImageView) findViewById(R.id.imageView);
        EditText txt = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.IDNumber);
        TextView txtQeus = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.txtQues);

        pic.setImageResource(R.drawable.emptyface);
        txt.setText("");
        txtQeus.setVisibility(View.INVISIBLE);
    }

    private boolean checkID() {
        EditText txt = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.IDNumber);
        int[] oneTwo = new int[]{1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2};
        int[] IDArr = new int[]{0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0};
        int sum = 0;
        String str = txt.getText().toString();
        int checkNum = Integer.parseInt(str.substring(str.length() - 1));
        str = str.substring(0, str.length() - 1);
        int num = Integer.parseInt(str);
        str = String.valueOf(num);
        int length = str.length();
        for (int i = 0; i < length; i++)
            IDArr[length - i - 1] = Integer.parseInt(str.substring(str.length() - 1 - i, str.length() - i));
        for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++) {
            int temp = oneTwo[i] * IDArr[i];
            if (temp > 9)
                temp = temp / 10 + temp % 10;
            sum += temp;
        }
        int div = sum % 10;
        div = 10 - div;
        if (div == 10)
            div = 0;
        if (div == checkNum)
            return true;
        return false;
    }

    private boolean checkLength() {
        EditText txt = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.IDNumber);
        String str = txt.getText().toString();
        if (str.length() > 9)
            return false;
        if (str.length() == 0)
            return false;
        return true;
    }

    private boolean checkNumbers() {
        EditText txt = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.IDNumber);
        String str = txt.getText().toString();
        if (str.matches("[0-9]+"))
            return true;
        return false;
    }

    public void checkIDBtn(View view) {
        if (checkLength()) {
            if (checkNumbers()) {

                    placePic();

                }
            }
        }, 5000);
    }
}

This is my XML file:

I read somewhere that the problem might be on the build.gradle file. This is my build.gradle file:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
    compileSdkVersion 21
    buildToolsVersion "21.1.2"

    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "binder.picturelicense"
        minSdkVersion 15
        targetSdkVersion 21
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
    }
    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
        }
    }
}

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:21.0.3'
}

And finally this is the error I see when I try to run the application:

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:dexDebug'.

Hi Itzick, paste this

configurations {
all*.exclude group: 'com.android.support', module: 'support-v4'
}

on top of your of your build.gradle (module:app) file.

This should to the trick.

Cheers, Jan
