    I have been compiling my apps fine until today..
    This error happened:

    • FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
    • * What went wrong:
    • Build file 'C:AndroidStudioProjects\Project\uild' does not exist.
    • * Try:
    • Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug opt
    • ion to get more log output.
    • BUILD FAILED
    This is after gradlew -build

    What do I do?
    Thanks :)

    I do not know much about Android Studio. But hey, it's quite obvious that you are missing a file. It could be because you are pointing to a non-existing directory ('C:AndroidStudioProjects\Project\uild' instead of 'C:\AndroidStudioProjects\Project\uild'). I don't have much more advice to give,

    So, Good luck.

    Often, errors like this can be prevented by just doing what it wants - create an empty folder and see if it still complains. If it does, you may get a different error which you can debug.

    pastebin the gradle script then. I'm assuming you modified it, since the default build script provided usually works just fine

    I assume your question was already answered. But, if you're still having problems, try running this command in the console:
    android update project -p /path/to/project

    If the build files don't exist, it should automatically create them or update them. If it still doesn't work, try getting a full stack trace (gradlew -build --stacktrace).

    Doesn't Android Studio expect 'uild' to be 'build'? I've had that problem before.

    Just behind you.
    Rename "C:AndroidStudioProjects\Project\uild" to "C:AndroidStudioProjects\Project\build" that should work, if not, post your exception stack trace so we can see it.
