Android Studio – installation problems

Posted by Vexillum on May 05, 2013

Google has just released their new Android development environment based on IntelliJ IDEA called Android Studio (more information).

After installing the android-studio-bundle.exe Android Studio does not start.
When you run the studio.bat you get this error:

ERROR: cannot start Android Studio.
No JDK found. Please validate either ANDROID_STUDIO_JDK, JDK_HOME or JAVA_HOME p
oints to valid JDK installation.
ECHO ist ausgeschaltet (OFF).

In ordert o solve this problem select:
Start menu > Computer > System Properties > Advanced System Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables
And add new system variable “JAVA_HOME” which points to your JDK folder, e.g. ”C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_21”.

This should fix the problem.
