"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?


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

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.
