Failed to import new Gradle project: failed to find Build Tools revision *.0.0

When I boot up Android Studio and select “New Project…” and go through creating a new project, I get this popup error:

Failed to import new Gradle project: failed to find Build Tools revision 17.0.0

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

I would love to consult the IDE log, but I haven’t even managed to get into the application to do much of anything. I’ve went through the preferences multiple times to see if I can set a path for the Build Tools, but I can’t find much of anything. How do I fix this, or how do I get into the application without opening a project so I can at least see the logs?

Answer

After spending a few hours: I restarted the Android SDK Manager and at this time I noticed that I got Android SDK Platform-tools (upgrade) and Android SDK Build-tools (new).

After installing those, I was finally able to fully compile my project.

Note: The latest ADT (Version 22) should be installed.
