Troubleshooting Installation Issues: Android Studio Failed to Install Gradle Distribution

Could not install Gradle distribution from ''. Reason: java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not create parent directory for lock file C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\gradle\wrapper\dists\gradle-8.4-bin\1w5dpkrfk8irigvoxmyhowfim\ Please ensure Android Studio can write to the specified Gradle wrapper distribution directory. You can also change Gradle home directory in Gradle Settings.

Best way is:

open Settings.

Build, Execution, Deployment > Build Tools > Gradle

set Gradle user home to .gradle path folder ex: C:/Users/NAME/.gradle

It seems like there's a permission issue preventing Android Studio from writing to the specified Gradle wrapper distribution directory. You can try the following steps to resolve this issue:

1. Run Android Studio as Administrator: Right-click on the Android Studio icon and select "Run as administrator". This should give Android Studio the necessary permissions to write to system directories.

2. Change Gradle Home Directory: Open Android Studio, go to File > Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > Gradle. Then, in the "Gradle settings" section, choose "Use local gradle distribution" and specify a directory where Android Studio has write permissions.

3. Check Directory Permissions: Ensure that the directory `C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\gradle\wrapper\dists\` and its subdirectories have write permissions for your user account.

4. Disable Antivirus or Security Software: Sometimes antivirus or security software can interfere with file operations. Try temporarily disabling any antivirus or security software and see if the issue persists.

5. Check Disk Space: Ensure that there is enough disk space available on your system drive (`C:\` drive) where Android Studio is installed.

6. Reinstall Android Studio: If none of the above steps work, consider reinstalling Android Studio. During the installation process, make sure to grant all necessary permissions.

After trying these steps, attempt to install the Gradle distribution again and see if the issue persists. If it does, there might be a more complex issue at play, and you may need to seek further assistance from the Android Studio support forums or technical support.
