Invalid Gradle JDK configuration found. Open Gradle Settings


I’m trying to integrate Jetpack Compose in my project with Android Studio 4.2 and I am getting the following error in the IDE:

Invalid Gradle JDK configuration found. Open Gradle Settings

I also checked the settings below:

  • Android gradle plugin version: 4.2.0-alpha01
  • Gradle version: 6.5-rc-1


composeOptions {
        kotlinCompilerVersion "1.3.70-dev-withExperimentalGoogleExtensions-20200424"
        kotlinCompilerExtensionVersion "0.1.0-dev13"
    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android-optimize.txt'), ''
    buildFeatures {
        compose true
    compileOptions {
        sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
        targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
    kotlinOptions {
        jvmTarget = "1.8"

Any idea?


The IDE seems to use a value defined in the .idea/gradle.xml file in your project.

If in that file, you have something like the following:

<option name="gradleJvm" value="12.0.1" />

try replacing it with that instead:

<option name="gradleJvm" value="1.8" />

EDIT: This was a bug in Android Studio 4.1 canary/beta that got fixed in 4.1 beta 2.
