Gradle: Execution failed for task ':processDebugManifest'

I'm getting a gradle error at building since yesterday - it just came randomly....

Full stacktrace here:

My project depends on multiple libraries and it built without any problems until yesterday (even with the librarys)

compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:3.1.36'
compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:13.0.0'
compile project(":libs:DatabaseCreationHelper")
compile project(":libs:actionbarsherlock")


Anyone has an idea how to fix it? it just randomly came... Full stacktrace here:

* Exception is:
org.gradle.api.tasks.TaskExecutionException: Execution failed for task ':ItchyFeet:processDebugManifest'.

Found the solution to this problem:

gradle assemble -info gave me the hint that the Manifests have different SDK Versions and cannot be merged.

I needed to edit my Manifests and build.gradle file and everything worked again.


To be clear you need to edit the uses-sdk in the AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="14" android:targetSdkVersion="16" />

and the android section, particularly minSdkVersion and targetSdkVersion in the build.gradle file

android {
    compileSdkVersion 17
    buildToolsVersion "17.0.0"

    defaultConfig {
        minSdkVersion 14
        targetSdkVersion 16
    }
}
