How to configure Android SDK for finding JDK

0 votes
I'm trying to install the Android SDK on my Windows 7 x64 System. jdk-6u23-windows-x64.exe is installed, but the Android SDK setup refuses to proceed, because it doesn't find the JDK installation.

Is this a known issue? And is there a solution?

Actual SETUP:

  • OS: Windows 8.1
  • JDK file: jdk-8u11-windows-x64.exe
  • ADT file: installer_r23.0.2-windows.exe

Install the x64 JDK, and try the back-next option first, and then try setting JAVA_HOME like the error message says, but if that doesn't work for you either, then try this:

Do as it says, set JAVA_HOME in your environment variables, but in the path use forward slashes instead of backslashes.

Seriously.

For me it failed when JAVA_HOME was C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_31 but worked fine when it was C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_31 - drove me nuts!

If this is not enough, also add to the beginning of the Environment Variable Path %JAVA_HOME%;

Updated values in System Environment Variables:

  • JAVA_HOME=C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.8.0_11
  • JRE_HOME=C:/Program Files/Java/jre8
  • Path=%JAVA_HOME%;C:...
