Android Studio causes the error of “bad class file magic (cafebabe) or version (0034.0000)”.

Problem

When I did “Debug app” in Android Sutdio 1.0.2, it caused the following error.

Executing tasks: [:app:assembleDebug]

Configuration on demand is an incubating feature.
:app:preBuild

:app:preDexDebug

How to fix it

I was using the JDK 1.8, I changed it to version 1.7.

I could give the location of the JDK at the “Project Structure” window. You can open it from the menu item of “File” – “Project Structure…”.

android_studio

project_settings
