getting the error message "Unrecognized VM option 'MaxPermSize=512m'"

User_NXTW8 Member Posts: 1 Green Ribbon

Hi ,

When trying to build my application using JDK17 with gradle 7.3.3 tool getting the below error message.

Starting a Gradle Daemon, 1 incompatible Daemon could not be reused, use --status for details

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:

Unable to start the daemon process.

This problem might be caused by incorrect configuration of the daemon.

For example, an unrecognized jvm option is used.

Please refer to the User Manual chapter on the daemon at

Process command line: C:\Program Files\Eclipse Adoptium\jdk-17\bin\java.exe -XX:MaxPermSize=512m --add-opens java.base/java.util=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens java.base/java.lang.invoke=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens java.base/java.util=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens java.prefs/java.util.prefs=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens java.prefs/java.util.prefs=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens java.base/java.nio.charset=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens java.base/ --add-opens java.base/java.util.concurrent.atomic=ALL-UNNAMED -Xmx2024m -Dfile.encoding=windows-1252 -Duser.language=en -Duser.variant -cp C:\gradle\gradle-7.3.3\lib\gradle-launcher-7.3.3.jar org.gradle.launcher.daemon.bootstrap.GradleDaemon 7.3.3
