“Cannot start compilation: the output path is not specified for module…”

Tags: , , ,



I have a very simple Java + Gradle project. It builds fine. It runs fine from the shell with “gradle run”. However, if I try to run inside of IntelliJ, I get:

Cannot start compilation: the output path is not specified for module "xyz" Specify the output path in Configure Project.

My “Compiler output” is set to “Inherit project compile output path”. I don’t want a custom output path, whatever that is, just do a normal gradle build and run.

Answer

You just have to go to your Module settings > Project and specify a “Project compiler output” and make your modules inherit from project. (For that go to Modules > Paths > Inherit project.

This did the trick for me.
