Gradle Could Not Normalize Path For File

Gradle Could Not Normalize Path For File

This one is for the windows users out there trying to develop in Android Studio. Trying to compile using the Google API’s. You may be getting the Gradle ‘Project Name’ project refresh fail. Could not normalize path for file ‘Path’ The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. ¬†You will also see the Gradle Project Sync Fail in the bottom right corner.

Gradle project refresh failed Could not normalize path for file

This stems from the filesystem naming rules in windows, and stems from the gradle build tools version 1.1.0. If you open the main build.gradle file and change the 1.1.0 to 1.1.2, this error should go away.
