I'm refactoring an app to use androidx. I have struggled to get rid of all the libraries that do not support it. I thought I had removed all the libraries that use the support libraries but it looks like there is still something that is importing it. I now get the error:

You can use ./gradlew tasks --all to find out which tasks you have. Among them there will be something like yourproject:dependencies, which you can run to get dependency tree like this:

./gradlew yourproject:dependencies

I have very similar problem and in my case solution is add in gradle.properties this two lines:

android.useAndroidX=true
android.enableJetifier=true

I hope it will help.

I got the same issue while adding,

implementation 'com.android.support.constraint:constraint-layout:1.1.2'

I could get rid out of the error while running the project.

D8: Program type already present - ionic-v3, Program type already present: android.support.v4.os.ResultReceiver$​MyResultReceiver * Try: Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack  Check the package which clashes with the com.android.support and exclude it from that package. For me, I was using androidx packages and also FCM, where there was a clash.

just marge dependency on AndroidX Library.

Example: app/build.gradle:

implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0'
implementation 'com.android.support:support-v4:28.0.0'

to:

implementation 'androidx.appcompat:appcompat:1.0.0'
implementation 'androidx.legacy:legacy-support-v4:1.0.0'

Than rebuild again, shows many errors. just comment out these old libraries. re-import android x library package. Example below:

Marge AndroidX: https://developer.android.com/jetpack/androidx/migrate

I hope to solve your problem.

[Question] Does anyone else have a problem when trying to use the , no problems but when running the application and as gradle builds the file I get​: Error: Program type already present: android.support.v4.os. This problem usually come from a naming conflict, in your case the support-v4 library, which is use by several libraries. To find the list of dependencies for the module app (default module's name for the app) we can do a gradlew app:dependencies to retrieve a list of all the libraries.

Im getting Program type already present: android.support.v4.os.ResultReceiver in 1.6.1 but not in 1.5.4. Im using the androidx packages, in case that has anything to do with it.

  • You can use ./gradlew tasks --all to find out which tasks you have. Among them there will be something like yourproject:dependencies, which you can run to get dependency tree like this: ./gradlew yourproject:dependencies Can you find from where you get that support-v4 library? I'm struggling with "cannot find support-v4-1.0.0-alpha1.aar"
  • See my answer for this question: stackoverflow.com/questions/51232581/…. (TL;DR no fix until google does something)
  • isn't it './gradlew androidDependencies'? I have already run it and I could see that there are depenencies from support libs even if I'm not importing them directly
  • @kingston , no, these are two different things (don't ask me how or what, I'm not android developer)
  • My problem arise when using Flutter with the google map plugin, and this solution worked. Thanks.
  • OK but you are not using androidx. My app works too, if I don't switch to androidx
  • I got the same error while moved to androidx. Couldn't find a solution with androidx.
