Android Studio 1.2.1.1 – “Aidl is missing ” error

After installing the Android Studio 1.2.1.1 and creating a blank project, I was face with several problems. The first one was that the Gradle gave an error which cause the build of the..erm…blank project to fail.

Being entirely new to Android development, including the use of Android Studio, I had no idea what this was even for. I barely even looked at it, and it’s already broken. It’s going to be a long day.

Solution:

1. Right-click on the root “app” folder of your application, then go down to “Open Module Settings”

2. Select 22.0.1 from the “Build Tools Version” drop-down select box, then click OK.

3. Gradle will now rebuild the project and the error should disappear. Take a deep breath, and move on to the next error.
