FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong: Execution failed for task ':app:transformClassesWithDexForDebug'. > com.android.ide.common.process.ProcessException: org.gradle.process.internal.ExecException: Process 'command 'C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_79\bin\java.exe'' finished with non-zero exit value 1.

I can run the AVD but then that comes up with the message "Unfortunately Launcher3 has stopped working". I have also clicked 'Clean Project' and 'Rebuild Project' which seems to get rid of the error, however when I click Run again, the error returns.
