Setting default JDK version for android studio windows

I have searched and could not find a solution for this problem.

Error:Buildtools 24.0.2 requires Java 1.8 or above. Current JDK version is 1.7.


My JAVA_HOME variable in path variable is pointing to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_101

I don't know what I am missing and I couldn't find any settings in android studio to change the JDK path.

Please help me out

Answer

Make sure that you have proper location and version of JDK

Go to File -> Project Structure. You would see this window:

You can also add compileOptions in your app/build.gradle file:

compileOptions {
    sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
    targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
}
