Gradle 'FunFacts' project refresh failed. Could not find any version that matches com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.12.+

when opening the android studio in windows 8.1 i get this error. i've tried many things including

  1. create a new project
  2. verify firewall settings
  3. open the fun facts project you provide 4.File -> Invalidate caches / Restart and rebuild.
  4. add Java\jdk1.7.0_67\bin directory to my PATH system variable.

nothing helped :( here is the full error:

quick update, I re-tried "File -> Invalidate caches / Restart and rebuild" and after a few times it manage to download everything and resolve it selves.

I keep this discussion open in case somebody else is having the same problem.

you just have to make this two changes changes inside the build.gradle file. 1

 classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.12.0'  

to

 classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:1.0.0' //this is the minimum supported version of gradle now

2

After this you will also have to change runProguard to minifyEnabled

buildTypes {
    release {
        runProguard false // you have to change 'runProguard' to 'minifyEnabled ' 
        proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
    }

runProguard was renamed to minifyEnabled in version 0.14.0.

I've done the invalidate and rebuild twice and get the same error. Windows 7. Android Studio 0.8.2.

Hello there!

Could you please open your build.gradle file and make the following change:

// (-) DELETE THIS LINE: classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.12.+'. Replace with below line \/
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.12.0'

This should fix your problem but if it doesn't, please paste your build.gradle contents onto here and I'll take a look :)

ok i deleted the line and added the new one. now here is what i get in build.gradle file:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android { compileSdkVersion 19 buildToolsVersion "0.12.0"

defaultConfig {
    applicationId "ca.slabber.funfacts"
    minSdkVersion 14
    targetSdkVersion 19
    versionCode 1
    versionName "1.0"
}
buildTypes {
    release {
        runProguard false
        proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
    }
}

}

dependencies { compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar']) }
