Without any changes in my code, suddenly i get this error when I try to run my app:
- What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ‘:app:packageDebug’.
com.android.builder.packaging.PackagerException: java.io.IOException: Failed to read zip file ‘C:\Users\Eliran\AndroidStudioProjects\Forum\app\build\outputs\apk\app-debug.apk’.
I have no idea why its trying to read the apk as zip file.
- If I restart Android Studio, I can run the app once and then It happens again.
For me it helps (for now) when I
Exit Android Studio, next I used
Windows Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) and kill process
Java(TM) Platform SE binary and delete that file manually. After that I run Android Studio again, click on the
Clean Project (there can be an error with app:clean, but you can run Android Studio again) and next click
Make Project – after that of course
Run 'app' button in Android Studio.
This issue has been reported to the development team: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=210693&thanks=210693&ts=1463824240
I try manual delete file, but the SO inform: the file “app-debug.apk” is in use by “OpenJDK Platform Binary”. Then I kill “OpenJDK Platform Binary” and this worked.
Its solve my problem perfectly. i Just delete my build file and file>> Invalidate and restart android studio. This problem occur for me change dependency version
After wasting my 4 hours i could fix this.
I fixed it by deleting ~/.android/debug.keystore file.
just delete debug.keystore file under .android
