How to setup Android Studio in El Capitan (OS X 10.11)?

Fresh install of El Capitan(10.11), tried to install Android Studio version 1.21.

Error:

Android Studio was unable to find a valid JVM. Please download it from:


Download available from Apple -Java for OS X 2014-001 also does not install.

Error:

Java for OS X can't be installed on this disk. A newer version of this package is already installed


What is the best way of getting this to run?

Answer

For it to work on El Capitan (OSX 10.11) you need to install the Java Development Kit, not only Java VM

After installing, the Andorid Studio runs as expected!
