Hi Everyone
I have just downloaded Android Studio and Java JDK onto Windows 10.
I have tried to create a new project and I keep getting the message attached below.

Gradle sync failed: Could not run build action using Gradle installation 'C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio3\gradle\gradle-2.8'. Consult IDE log for more details

Please help.

Gradle sync usually occurs after you edit a gradle  file or you download new updates,

What do you see if you click 6 Android Monitor?

Why is there an Android Studio 3 in your path? I believe it should be just Android Studio
1.explore the path starting at C:
You should find each folder as you go deeper.
If I am right you will find C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\gradle\gradle-2.8
2. Truthfully I am not sure how to correct it but I did find this while browsing thru the gradle files.
