‘gradle’ is not recognized as an internal or external command

While trying to run a gradle command, I see ‘gradle’ is not recognized as an internal or external command. It took me sometime to know the Gradle executable path, after installing Android Studio. Hence, thought to share so it may help somebody…

The gradle executable is usually installed here(when installed by Android-Studio):

<user_home_dir>.gradle\wrapper\dists\gradle-<version>-bins\<somekey>\gradle-<version>\bin

<user_home_dir>, refers to the user directory, eg. C:Users/myuser

<version>, refers to installed gradle version number like 1.6 or 1.7 etc

the whole path looks like below

C:\Users\praveen\.gradle\wrapper\dists\gradle-1.6-bin\72srdo3a5eb3bic159kar72vok\gradle-1.6\bin

You have to set this kind of path in Environment variable PATH. And then close and reopen the cmd Prompt. Now you can able to run gradle commands

try, and you can see following details
>gradle -v
