(Waseef Akhtar) #1

I try to build a module in Android Studio. It seemed to run on device but when I tried to build an APK, I got an error:

Program type already present: com.facebook.ads.Ad

Here’s the complete log:

Based on answers I found in other questions, what I tried so far are:

  • Clean & rebuild.
  • Clean & make project.
  • Restart Android Studio.
  • Make sure multiDexEnabled is set to true.
  • Change JDK versions.
  • Change Gradle versions.

None of which worked for me. Also, when I try to look for dependencies in a tree by ./gradle app:dependencies, I find nothing of the sort: com.facebook.ads.Ad. How should I resolve this?


(Michael Roebuck) #2

If you haven’t resolved your problem yet, it would help to see your gradle file. There may be two dependencies that both depend on that library.

How to resolve this: I don’t know. I’m currently dealing with the same thing. I’ve tried to exclude a group, to no prevail.
