Hi:

I'm new to the world of Android Development, ADK and Android Studio.
I've been following along some online tutorials which have some sample projects.
From within Android Studio, I select:  Import Project.

I get the "Import Project from Gradle" dialog.
I'm using the default gradle wrapper.
I go ahead, hit "OK" and I see the following warning/error message:

You are using an old, unsupported version of Gradle. Please use version 1.8 or greater.
Please point to a supported Gradle version in the project's Gradle settings or in the project's Gradle wrapper (if applicable.)

Consult IDE log for more details (Help | Show Log)

How do I fix this issue?

Thanks,
JohnB

The answer is to create a new project and then copy everything over by hand.
There are a bunch of issues with the latest versions of Android Studio and gradle.
They are pretty flakey when it comes to upgrading versions for previous projects.
(Android Studio is still very much in pre-release mode).

I did this and got further along,
at least far enough to close this issue out.

No answered my question here.
Are there folks support Android, Android Studio and gradle here?
