Are you using IntelliJ or a different IDE?

It's IntelliJ. Tried it on both Mac and PC with same error. I think somehow Gradle isn't connecting with a server. I believe it's all there, but it feels like a configuration issue though I can't figure it out.

Same confusion, found in folder: ".idea/modules". probably relocated in the new version.

Cool...thanks. So, it's there. I'll mark you best. Actually, I ignored this and moved on anyway, but I'm also not seeing dependencies load...I am going to try to figure that out this morning. Slightly frustrating since I thought the whole reason for IntelliJ>Eclipse was, at least for purposes of this course, that Gradle is integrated out of the box.
