The line cmdline-tools component is missing sometime becomes tricky to resolve. There are lot of suggestions out there that provides steps to install command line tools from Sdk Manager. If you are one of the unlucky ones, these suggestions do not work. This does not mean that command line tools are not installed. When all options do not seem to work, add ANDROID_HOME environment variable on your Windows machine. Set the path of this variable to location where Android SDK is installed on your machine. E.g. in my machine, I have installed Android SDK at C:\Development\Android\Sdk, so I point ANDROID_HOME environment variable to this folder. This has helped me at times when all else has failed.
