Android Studio: Unable to start the daemon process

I'm facing the below error when I'm trying to import a gradle project in Android Studio.

Unable to start the daemon process.
This problem might be caused by incorrect configuration of the daemon.
For example, an unrecognized jvm option is used.
Please refer to the user guide chapter on the daemon at http://gradle.org/docs/1.8/userguide/gradle_daemon.html
Please read below process output to find out more:


and this is the output I see:

I've turned off my anti-virus which was mentioned in a solution in SO. But nothing seems to work.

Answer

Try deleting your .gradle from C:\Users\<username> directory and try again.
