android – Unsupported method: AndroidProject.getPluginGeneration() while running project

Posted by: admin March 11, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I’m trying to run my Project with Android Studio 2.2 but I get this error

Unsupported method: AndroidProject.getPluginGeneration().
The version of Gradle you connect to does not support that method.

I am using ButterKnife 8.4.0

My app gradle.file:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.2.0'
        classpath 'com.neenbedankt.gradle.plugins:android-apt:1.8'
    }
}

My module gradle file:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
apply plugin: 'android-apt'

android {
    compileSdkVersion 23
    buildToolsVersion "23.0.3"

    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "xxx.xx"
        minSdkVersion 10
        targetSdkVersion 23
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
    }
}

dependencies {
    compile 'com.jakewharton:butterknife:8.4.0'
    apt 'com.jakewharton:butterknife-compiler:8.4.0'
}

Why does it not work and how do I solve it?

How to&Answers:

General Issue:-

It can occur because AS was checking availability of the Instant Run feature. The fixed is to disable Instant Run:

Windows & Linux:

File -> Settings -> Build, Execution, Deployment -> Instant Run.

Mac:

Android Studio -> Preferences -> Build, Execution, Deployment -> Instant Run.

Thanks to @pophus for mentioning this.

Use this Steps If you are using a butterknife:-

If you are using the new Jack compiler with version 2.2.0 or newer, you do not need the ‘android-apt’ plugin and can instead replace apt with annotationProcessor when declaring the compiler dependency.

That is, remove

classpath 'com.neenbedankt.gradle.plugins:android-apt:1.8'

from your main gradle file

And remove

apply plugin: 'android-apt'

from your main module file

and replace

apt 'com.jakewharton:butterknife-compiler:8.4.0'

with

annotationProcessor 'com.jakewharton:butterknife-compiler:8.4.0'

Answer:

I encountered this error in Android Studio 2.2, in my case it was cause by AS checking availability of the Instant Run feature. I fixed it by disabling Instant Run:

Android Studio -> Preferences -> Build, Execution, Deployment -> Instant Run

Answer:

Change gradle version to 2.2

dependencies {
    classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.2.0'
}

Answer:

On Windows it is

File / Settings/ Build, Execution, Deployment / Instant Run.

Uncheck Enable Instant Run to hot swap code...

Answer:

just close instant run

Windows
File -Settings- Build, Execution, Deployment – Instant Run.

MAC
Android Studio -> Preferences -> Build, Execution, Deployment -> Instant Run.

Answer:

I ran in the same error on a very old project. Since Android Studio 3.5 does not have the Instant Run Option anymore, I required a different solution.

It turned out, that I had to change the gradle version manually in the Project Settings. I used the version a New Project would use automatically, since the dropdowns were empty.

In my case, it was Plugin Version 3.5.1 and Gradle Version 5.4.1.

After that I started a Build – Clean Project and everything turned out fine.

Answer:

Just upgrade the Gradle plugin version to the last version :

dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.5.1'

        // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
        // in the individual module build.gradle files
    }

and be sure your Gradle is the last v too :

#Sun Nov 03 16:47:32 IRST 2019
distributionBase=GRADLE_USER_HOME
distributionPath=wrapper/dists
zipStoreBase=GRADLE_USER_HOME
zipStorePath=wrapper/dists
distributionUrl=https\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-5.4.1-all.zip

NOTE: use google in repository too
