Java Question

With android studio no jvm found, JAVA_HOME has been set

I have a JAVA_HOME variable set to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_45\
And the path to the jdk is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_45

However when I try to start android studio I get the error:

No JVM installation found. Please install a 64 bit JDK. If you already
have a JDK installed define a JAVA_HOME variable in Computer > System
Properties > System Settings > Environment Variables.


It says that it should be a 64-bit JDK. I have a feeling that you installed (at a previous time) a 32-bit version of Java. The path for all 32-bit applications in Windows 7 and Vista is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\

You were setting the JAVA_HOME variable to the 32-bit version of Java. Set your JAVA_HOME variable to the following:

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_45

If that does not work, check that the JDK version is 1.7.0_45. If not, change the JAVA_HOME variable to (with JAVAVERSION as the Java version number:

C:\Program Files\Java\jdkJAVAVERSION
