I'm getting software conflict errors such as Gradle could not find the path to the JDK.
After much research and trial & error experiments I've gained more knowledge but still didn't get a straight solution to how that setup should be done correctly.
I've tried several software/settings combinations, hacks and answers I found on Stack Exchange and such sites. But then other issues pop up (and a Gradle scan shows more of them) and what is needed is the correct explanation of how that should be done to build a robust environment the way it was meant to be by the developers.
Android Developer site, the official site from which to download Android Studio, doen't state there's a need for additional JDK/JRE installation, and I also found within Studio a differed version than the latest and no JDK (which is the one that, as I understand, Studio actually needs).
C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\jre
I'm using the latest versions on a Windows 8.1 on a Lenovo Y50-70 (64 bit, 16GB RAM):
Android Studio 3.1.2
Gradle 4.4 through Gradle plugin 3.1.2
JDK 10.0.2 (Oracle states it includes the JRE).
I've already installed and uninstalled a couple of times and wouldn't like to further mess up anything (OS registry etc.), what's needed is an experienced expert on-point advise.
Thanks in advance.
