android studio

Hi everybody I'm trying to run the hello world program on android studio, but I get a "local path doesn't exist" message. When I open the event log it says: "Local path doesn't exist. The project may need to be synced with Gradle files. Sync Project with Gradle files"

Then I try to sync with grade files, but the issue is still there.

Hi Ivan Android Studio is very powerful but does have a few glitches here and there as its new. There is a couple of things you could do the easiest may be to upgrade to the latest version. Another option is the gradle tools version is not set correctly running Android Studio 2.5 I believe gradle tools version nine is the correct option so you would need to in build.gradle make sure gradle is set to 0.9.0.

Here are some other options that I may help
