I did mentioned it above! its the same answer, the link you provide.
Though its running now on my machine.

The problem was of a restart required, after deleting everything and then after restart , shut down any firewall working on your system, esp when its handled by an antivirus [ my case: norton internet security]  and then opening the same app and rebuilding it, then it shows no error! :) 

Anyways , thanks for the reply! :)
