What Causes the 'Task Wrapper Not Found in Project :App' Error?

This error is usually caused by missing or incorrect configuration in the build.gradle file, specifically related to the Gradle wrapper task. The Gradle wrapper is a shell script that automatically downloads and installs the correct version of Gradle for a project. When the wrapper task is not found, it prevents Android Studio from building the project correctly.

Step-by-Step Solution

Follow these steps to resolve the 'Task Wrapper Not Found in Project :App' error in Android Studio:

Step 1: Verify the Gradle Wrapper Configuration

Open your project in Android Studio.

Locate the build.gradle file for your project. This can usually be found in the root directory of your project.

Open the build.gradle file and make sure the following lines are present:

task wrapper(type: Wrapper) {
    gradleVersion = 'X.X.X'

Replace X.X.X with the version of Gradle you want to use for your project. You can find the latest Gradle version here.

Save the changes to your build.gradle file.

Step 2: Update the Gradle Wrapper

Open a terminal or command prompt window.

Navigate to the root directory of your project.

Run the following command to update the Gradle wrapper:

./gradlew wrapper

If you are using Windows, use the following command:

gradlew wrapper

Wait for the Gradle wrapper to update. This may take a few moments.

Step 3: Sync Gradle and Rebuild the Project

  1. Return to Android Studio.
  2. Click the "Sync Project with Gradle Files" button located near the top-right corner of the window.
  3. After the Gradle sync is complete, click "Build" in the menu bar, then select "Rebuild Project."
  4. Wait for the rebuild process to complete. The 'Task Wrapper Not Found in Project :App' error should now be resolved.

FAQ Section

How do I check which Gradle version I'm currently using?

In Android Studio, go to File > Project Structure > Project, and you will see the Gradle version specified in the "Gradle Version" field.

What is the difference between the project-level build.gradle and the module-level build.gradle?

The project-level build.gradle file contains configuration settings that apply to the entire project. The module-level build.gradle file, on the other hand, contains settings specific to individual modules within the project.

Can I use a different version of Gradle for each module in my project?

No, you cannot use different Gradle versions for individual modules. The Gradle version you specify in the project-level build.gradle file applies to the entire project.

What are the benefits of using the Gradle Wrapper?

The Gradle Wrapper ensures that the correct version of Gradle is used for your project, even if the developer's machine has a different version of Gradle installed. This helps maintain consistency across development environments and makes it easier for other developers to work on your project.

How do I update the Gradle Wrapper in Android Studio without using the command line?

In Android Studio, go to File > Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > Gradle > Gradle Wrapper. Here, you can update the Gradle Wrapper by specifying the desired Gradle version and clicking "OK."
