I have just switched from Windows7 to Windows8.1 and I’m having trouble making Android Studio work now.
I have installed Android Studio and the JDK. First I tried it out with the latest versions Android Studio
v.0.8.14 and JDK
1.8, but I could not get it to work. I then tried to use the versions I used on my previous Windows7, and installed Android Studio
0.8.2 and JDK
1.7.0_67, but I still can’t get it to work.
The error I’m getting is:
Failed to load JVM DLL C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_67\jre. If you
already have a 64-bit JDK installed, define JAVA_HOME variable in
Computer > System Properties > System Settings > Environment
I have set
JAVA_HOME to my JDK path. I’ve tried to add
\bin to that path, which didn’t help. I’ve tried to add the
JDK_HOME variable and set path to it, which didn’t help either. I have also added
"C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_67\" to my PATH variable, which also didn’t help. I tried editing
studio.bat adding a string to point to my JDK folder, which also didn’t work.
When I check my Java from console (
cmd) I get the msg that it works find:
C:\Users\Igor>java -version java version “1.7.0_67” Java(TM) SE
Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_67-b01) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit
Server VM (build 24.65-b04, mixed mode)
Is Windows 8.1 the problem? Do I have to do something different on it?
To get this working, I put my JDK path in the Path variable as the first item. For some reason, when it’s the last item it does not work.
