Program will exit). i googled it and tried this- File ->Settings -> Gradle "Gradle VM options:" box: -XX:MaxHeapSize=256m -Xmx256m But it shows: (Failed to complete Gradle execution.Cause:Could not find or load main class box:)

I had this same error several times yesterday. What I did is turn android studio off...and remove the gradle and .gradle file from my project file (the one I was working on through my user directory) and then...I turned on Android studio, tried to run my project and it gave me a new error that I need some type of version of gradle. I then turned off android studio and went and re-added the gradle and .gradle files to my project file, turned on android studio and ran the project. That fixed it. I am not sure if it will work for you but you can try it.

are u talking about gradle and .gradle folder in the directory

Well lets say your project name is.... "FirstApp" and your workspace is at C://Users/Chimed/Android Studio/ ... you find the folder C://Users/Chimed/Android Studio/ FirstApp and there you will see a gradle and .gradle file in it.

after doing your method their is no error but emulator is still not popping up

Do you see any thing written in the logcat when you try to run the emulator? Did the gradle completed its course? It takes some minutes or seconds for it to load.

their is nothing in the logcat , result of gradle is Build sucessful 0 error 0 warning. I have waited 15min for emulator.

Can you restart your computer or close android studio and kill its process (if it is still running on task manager) then try again?

Still not working In Run console - Waiting for device "C:\Users..... "

Did you add the files back in as I said? This is pretty strange especially if it gives you no error.
