"Use default gradle wrapper" option disabled

When I try to import a gradle project the option to use the deafult gradle wrapper is disabled. What can I do to fix this?


Your project has to have a gradle directory with gradle-wrapper.jar. If IntelliJ doesn't detect this jar, it disables the wrapper radio button.


Hi Marcin,

I'm having the same problem. The build.gradle file is located in the project's root directory whereas  the jar file is located ./gradle-wrapper/gradle-wrapper.jar.

Can you please help out?

Thanks David
