    Hey, I'm just starting to learn to code Java, but having hard time with one error in Android Studio.
    So I was following simple lesson to copy text to console, but getting error:

    FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
    * Where:
    Initialization script 'C:\Users\elvij\AppData\Local\Temp\Helloworld_main__.gradle' line: 20
    * What went wrong:
    A problem occurred configuring project ':app'.
    > Could not create task ':app:Helloworld.main()'.
    > SourceSet with name 'main' not found.
    * Try:
    Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. Run with --scan to get full insights.
    * Get more help at https://help.gradle.org

    I even reinstalled Android Studio, but didn't help.What's the problem?

  2. I have this exact problem also. I'm a new java programmer coming from Netbeans IDE. What is the issue? Have you found a solution?

    Can you share your code?
    Use code tags to wrap it:

    Same problem here.
    I started the first project and everything still working fine. I updated Android studio and when i start a new project (No activity) I get that output.
    As FoxRio, i reinstalled Android Studio and, the old 1st project can be opened and run witouth exception, when i try to start a new one i cannot.
