Can't compile new App templates in Android Studio


Does anyone know how to solve the following error when trying to compile any of the new Estimote app templates in Android studios, for instance Proximity for Multiple Beacons. I have tried both Java and Kotlin versions, but it always shows “Error: java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: AAPT2 error”

Does anyone know how to resolve this so that I can build the APK files?


Can you let us know:

  • your Android Studio version
  • click File => Project Structure => Project; what does Gradle version and Android Plugin Version say?

I tested Proximity for multiple beacons on Android Studio 3.1.3, and with the default Gradle configuration that comes with the example (Gradle 4.1, plugin 3.0.1), on a macOS, and it worked for me.
